This chapter analyses the debates amongst feminist activists in order to consider how feminists in Scotland interpreted international discussions of feminist theory. It first of all describes the forums where debates occurred before focusing on the debates themselves. Reflecting concerns amongst the wider movement in Britain, women debated sexualities and feminist ideologies. Chris Aldred felt that if she wanted to network with feminists beyond Aberdeen then she would have to travel as very few national women's liberation events were held in towns and cities near to Aberdeen. Irrespective of whether women had been born in England, many Scottish-based feminists expressed outrage at the London/Southern domination of the movement. Scottish-based feminists were concerned with the organisation of the movement and its impact on recruitment, and the additional problem of the domination of the British movement by groups in London and the South of England.
