Scottish independence: Sturgeon on how female voters are key

22 April 2014 Last updated at 07:08 BST

BBC broadcaster Jackie Bird has been travelling the country to find out what matters to female voters in the referendum on Scottish independence.

With women accounting for 52% of voters in Scotland, Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says the decision for her to front the Yes campaign was not just a cynical ploy to encourage women to vote.

She added: "If we can make independence appealing to women, and I think we're on the way to doing that, then I think we'll have cracked the referendum".
