Abstract

Constitutional changes in the United Kingdom have opened up
opportunities for women in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to
mobilise around issues of political representation in its broadest sense.
Women activists have played a part in improving symbolic and substantive
representation. Devolution has thus meant not only renegotiation of
powers between centre and sub-state nation, but also some redistribution
of political power between the sexes.
