1950 · The Stone of Scone

Age 0

Also known as the Stone of Destiny, the Stone of Scone was often used as a Coronation stone for the monarchs of Scotland and, later, those of England. The stone was kept at the Scone Abbey near Perth but was last used in 1953 for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. Today a replica exists outside the remodeled Scone Abbey for visitors to learn of its history and its importance. The actual stone is housed in Edinburgh Castle.
1955 · General Motors Auto Workers Strike

Age 5

From 1955-1956, around 17,000 workers for General Motors went on strike. They wanted a pay raise, more secure working conditions, and a health plan half paid by General Motors. The strike lasted 148 days.
1968 · The General Assembly of the Church of Scotland permits the ordination of women as ministers.

Age 18

Reverend Catherine McConnachie became the first female ordained as a minister in the Church of Scotland after Mary Levison petitioned the General Assembly for ordination in 1963. It wasn’t long until the local Presbyterian Church’s elders came together with the General Assembly and changed its legislation to allow the ordination of women as elders in 1966 and as ministers in 1968. Today there are many women serving the Church of Scotland as ministers, elders, and deaconess.
