This chapter introduces the reader to ways in which gender history and women's history have the potential to shift the agenda. It briefly surveys the breadth of research on women's and gender history in Scotland and suggests how the methodological and conceptual approaches of those historians concerned with gender relations help us to rethink ways in which Scottish history is interpreted and made relevant to modern readers.
