Scope and Content

The materials donated were collecting during the research for the Dobashes' book, Violence Against Wives (1979), which was fundamental in the early work of Women's Aid groups throughout Scotland. The donation included four boxes of original news cuttings, and one box of other materials including personal correspondence to Rebecca and Russell Dobash, Scottish Women's Aid and local Women's Aid groups documents and newsletters (arranged into their corresponding series), and other publications.


The news cuttings have been maintained in their original order. Materials created by Scottish Women's Aid and other local Women's Aid groups have been moved into their relevant series.
