Although the political union between England and Scotland is a relatively short period in Scotland’s long history, it’s sometimes portrayed as irrevocably permanent. It’s also portrayed as a union the people chose to enter into, when this is demonstrably not true. Despite the result of the Referendum on 18th September 2014 those of us joining Women for Independence still wish to challenge these perceptions, in order to make sure that at the next opportunity the people of this country will not be taken in by scaremongering and false 'vows' , but wiil vote to be an independent nation.
We haven't given in. We're carrying on the fight to create a more equal society and a better democracy. .At this stage, we're not sure how... but watch this space.
