The chapter introduces a broad rethinking of the political that does not take the ‘public’ arena as a necessary starting-point but considers the interaction of political, familial and community structures. This includes a discussion of citizenship beyond the autonomous male subject of liberal theory and the legal definition of enfranchisement, to include participation in the national identity and its projects; women's constructions of citizenship, including maternal and social citizenship and male exclusions from citizenship. It includes the emergence, nature and impact of the women's movement in Scotland.
