Insight: A Scots grave leads to fascinating story of a forgotten suffragette Take a walk through Cathcart Cemetery. Pick your way along an overgrown path scythed by a fallen branch. Clamber up behind the Hood mausoleum, with its Philae Temple of Hathor pretensions. Squelch through the mud and mulch, then stop under a spreading horse chestnut tree.

Did you know that three young women from Broxburn marched at the front of the Edinburgh Suffrage Demonstration in 1909?

They were Sarah McDougall, Miss McGavin and Miss Black. They were part of Dr Kelso's "Lothian Lasses." Alongside two other member, and dressed in full Highland costume, they played the pipes at the front of the procession.

The 1909 demonstration was the biggest spectacle of the Scottish suffrage movement. Thousands of women, dressed in suffrage colours, paraded down Princess Street. The event was planned and managed by women. Women acted as stewards, flagholders and chauffeurs. They were some men present - Broxburn Public Band also played at the event.

The young female pipers had originally started out as the highland dancers for Dr Kelso's Lothian Pipers. They were given the opportunity to learn the pipes and under Dr Kelso's guidance became one of the first female pipe bands in Scotland.

The 1909 demonstration culminated in a large suffrage meeting at Waverley Market. As thousands of protestors arrived, the female pipers played on the platform, stopping only when Mrs Pankhurst arrived to give her address. According to the Linlithgow Gazette, "mere men held their breath in admiration."

Find out more by visiting our exhibition, "Women & Democracy: the West Lothian Story - it's on display at Strathbrock Partnership Centre for the next 3 weeks.
