***NEW – 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
