Guest Editorial

O'Shea, Helen and Barker, Kim (2024). Guest Editorial. Scottish Affairs, 33(1) pp. 1–3.



Women have played a pivotal role in the development of modern Scottish society, but as the BBC Series, Women Who Changed Modern Scotland illustrated, they have not always been recognised, acknowledged nor celebrated for their achievements. Much like the series itself, this Special Edition seeks to expand on the issues and successes, exploring new themes while revisiting others. Above all else, as we mark International Women's Day 2024, we celebrate all of those whose shoulders we stand upon while also sounding the alarm as Scotland stands at the crossroads of progress. We have come such a long way, but there is so much further to go.
