Over twenty folk gathered in Islesburgh Community Centre on Thursday for a discussion on the referendum.
They were joined by journalist Ruth Wishart and MSP Jean Urquhart, who spoke briefly about why they support a Yes vote.
This was followed by a lively discussion, with Yes, No and undecided voters contributing.
The meeting was run by Shetland Women for Independence, which was set up in April this year.
Women for Independence is a nation-wide movement, with local groups all over Scotland.
They campaign for women’s voices to be heard in the independence debate, and believe that a Yes vote will improve the lives of ordinary women.
The Shetland group can be found on Facebook, twitter and at www.womenforindyshetland.wordpress.com
