Margaret Skinnider (1892-1971) was a revolutionary and feminist born in Coatbridge, Scotland. She fought during the 1916 Easter Rising in Dublin. Her part in the Easter Rising was all the more notable because she was a woman, a sniper and the only female wounded in the action. She was mentioned three times for bravery in the dispatches sent to the GPO. Sadhbh Walsche in The New York Times refers to her as 'The school teacher turned sniper'.
