A #SaturdayMotivation thread of our amazing Scottish foremothers who knew being divisive is the path to change.1st, Rose Klasko Kerrigan, sacked at 14 for speaking against WWI. She scandalized Glasgow’s only birth control clinic by seeking contraception before she had kids. /1 Rose Klasko Kerrigan
Next 1000s of Scottish suffragettes,criticised in their struggle for 'being divisive'. These women took militant action as well as raising petitions etc. My fave is Mary Maloney who followed Churchill round Dundee in 1908 ringing a bell because he wouldn't address the issue. /2 Scottish suffragettes raising a petition
Sophia Jex Blake who caused dreadful division in the medical community by seeking to become a doctor. Tut tut, Sophia. She was described by contemporary Elizabeth Blackwell as ‘a dangerous woman’ because of her steely determination to break down closed doors. She succeeded. /3 Sophia Jex Blake
