Description :
The introduction of capitalism into the region and the consequent development of crofting agriculture, compelled the reworking of existing relations between men and women. Women became central to the functioning of the crofting economy and vital to the maintenance of claims to land. From this they drew the strength to participate in protest and drew upon the same nexus of motivations as their male counterparts.
