The lass o' pairts is a girl or woman with some smarts about her, a promising lassie, a young woman with some talent to her name. Scotland has a long tradition of tough, smart women. But we still are underepresented in Parliament, in business and in public life. And we still get paid less for the work we do.
I love my work, am intrigued by politics and current affairs, and want to be a strong woman taking her part in what Scotland is about. And I want to reclaim the 'f' word and have a voice in the issues that affect everyone without having to consider my gender first and navigate it as an obstacle.
So this blog combines my thoughts and comments on politics and current affairs with a healthy dose of feminism.
