100 years on from the Representation of the People Act, we're pleased to present a new On the Engender miniseries exploring the history and legacy of the suffrage movement in Scotland, and the barriers which still exist today for young women, refugee and asylum seeking women, women in prison, trans women and non binary people, and women facing domestic abuse. Over the next few weeks we'll be bringing you some amazing people talking about Scottish women and the vote over the last century, and where we go from here.

This episode is the first part of our Vote Centenary Grant Scheme funded miniseries and was recorded live at Engender's AGM at the Grassmarket Community Centre in Edinburgh and features special guest Dr Esther Brietenbach from Women's History Scotland.

Resources discussed in this episode:

- The Women's Suffrage Movement in Scotland, 1867-1928: A Learning Resource

- The New Biographical Dictionary of Scottish Women
