About The Feminist Yes

The Feminist Yes is a small collective supporting a Yes vote in the referendum. Their members are Nel Whiting, Marsha Scott and Lesley Orr. Nel has worked in the violence against woman sector for the past ten years. She is also studying towards a PhD, looking at issues of national, familial and gender identity in late eighteenth-century Scottish paintings. Originally from Wales, Scotland has been her home for 15 years. Dr. Marsha Scott is a feminist activist, researcher and bureaucrat who has done everything from emptying the bins in her local refuge to presenting on women’s rights at the UN. Marsha joined Women for Independence in January and is constantly inspired by the energy that tired women bring to making our world a more equal, more just, more peaceful place to live. Lesley is a feminist historian and activist from Edinburgh. She has worked for many years in movements for gender and social justice. A member of the Iona Community, she has recently been invited to join the board of Common Weal.
