Scope and Content

This series consists of press cuttings from various Scottish newspapers collected by Scottish Women's Aid workers from the late 1970s to early 1990s. They cover various themes relating to women and children during this time period, including domestic abuse, violence against women, children and youth, the law, government and politics, feminism, campaigning, discrimination, health, work, housing, religion, marriage and divorce, and arts, media, and culture.


The press cuttings have been arranged both thematically and chronologically, based on how they were arranged by Scottish Women's Aid workers. The archivists have maintained the categories used by SWA and added additional ones at sub-series and file level in order to make the series more accessible for researchers. Within each file, items have been arranged chronologically. Item level lists are available from Archives staff


No further accruals are expected.
