Launched today … a redesign, and lots of other improvements for the Women in Scottish History website. Take a look: http://womeninscottishhistory.org

We have been working with Prof. Elizabeth Ewan of the Department of History at the University of Guelph for approximately 8 years to build the WISH database. 2016 saw a major relaunch as we integrated WISH into a WordPress CMS front end, to allow much more power over the content that accompanies, a fresh graphic design, and improved usuability of the database as a whole.

The WISH website provides a location for materials on the history of Scottish women. It includes primary documents, a searchable bibliography of primary and secondary books and articles, a list of researchers in the field, and brief biographies of women not included in The Biographical Dictionary of Scottish Women(Edinburgh University Press, 2006)
