Women’s Challenge

At SATH, we’re conscious that in Scottish History, like History elsewhere, Scottish women have often been side-lined, or we have heard very little about their contribution. We thought it was time to do something about that.

During the 2021 lockdown, we asked pupils in Scotland to research and then tell us about some of these lesser known women, and were extremely impressed with the submissions we received. We have selected some of our favourites to share with you, so perhaps some of these women might become better known.
