This chapter offers a brief history of local women's liberation workshops in order to establish for the first time the variety of different campaigns and locations of feminist activism within Scotland. During the 1970s a number of women's liberation workshops and feminist groups were established throughout Scotland, from Shetland to the Borders and with large groups existing in almost every major university town. Women's Studies courses sought to introduce students to subjects like Psychology, Sociology, History and English, but with an emphasis on women's experiences. In Aberdeen during International Women's Year (IWY) in 1975 the women's liberation group protested outside an event which was intended to celebrate women's groups in the city. The Glasgow women's liberation workshop met in various places including Shelter's premises, the Iona Community House and individuals' homes. Meeting places differed according to the requirements of the local membership.
