  • Scope and Contents

    Electronic archive, digital images, sound and video recordings, and related ephemera of the Gude Cause project, 2008-2010. The project’s main objective was to celebrate the centenary of the Women’s Social and Political Union procession which took place in Edinburgh on 10 October 1909. Furthermore, in the light of a report published before the 2007 Scottish Parliament Election, Gude Cause sought to reenergize women’s participation in Scottish political life.

    The archive charts the development of the project from the early days until its completion in 2010. It provides an insight into how activists came together to raise awareness about the significance of participation in democratic processes, not only among ordinary people but also among Scottish politicians whose support and co-operation was actively sought.
