This chapter studies several female fiction writers, their responses to modernity and the contribution these responses have made to a Scottish modernism, taking a look at the difference between ‘women's history and a history informed by understandings of gender’. It discusses the early phase of feminist modernist criticism and notes that most of these female writers came from a higher social class than their male counterparts in Scotland.
