Resources:

***Resources for the history of BAME women in Scotland***

We hope schools and researchers will find the resource a good starting point to find out more about BAME women in Scottish history. We are aware that there is likely to be a lot more material than this, whether personal accounts or organisational history, or ongoing research that we don’t know about. This page will be a work-in-progress with resources added as we find out about new work and projects. If you have any suggestions we can add please get in touch info@womenshistoryscotland.org or through Facebook or twitter @WomensHistScot 


This free online course which two of our committee members led on, and several more contributed to, is still available via Open Learn at the University of Glasgow – find out more here:


At the beginning of March 2021 we organised an online session offering strategies and advice about getting published in women’s and gender history for members of Women’s History Scotland. Find out more here:
