The Yes and No sides both want women’s votes: but they have a funny way of showing it

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

Women appear to be everywhere in the debate on Scotland’s independence, except in the thinking of the mainstream parties when it comes to seeking ways to promote gender equality and eliminate discrimination in a future Scotland. This is despite the emphasis on securing women’s votes for both Yes and No campaigns and recent evidence of a continuing gap in voting intentions.
