What were women’s roles in the 1745 Jacobite Uprising?

Leigh Walker, 28

The documentary explores the story of Lady Anne Mackintosh and her actions before and during the 1745 Jacobite Uprising. It also explores class divisions in regards to women’s roles and treatment during and after the uprising. It is important due to many women’s stories being distorted through propaganda or not being discussed at all, especially in media when the 1745 uprising is discussed.
