Les Femmes, les politiques publiques et le Scotland Act de 2016

Abstract : Devolution was devised in the 1990s by opposition politicians and civil society, so that the people living in Scotland - including formerly under-represented individuals such as women - would elect their own representatives who would offer Scottish responses to British or Scottish issues. In 2016, after the referendum on Scotland’s independence, unionists met their pledges and amended the 1998 Scotland Act in order to extend the powers of the Scottish Parliament. As some of the newly-devolved areas would affect women exclusively or predominantly, female politicians have been very active in the whole process. This chapter analyses the debates held in the House of Commons and in the Scottish Parliament in order to shed light on the role of women from the drafting of the bill to its implementation.
