The article examines the participation of women in overseas trade in Scotland during the sixteenth century. The participation of women in the international trading sector in late medieval and early modern Europe has long been recognized. The participation of widows in trade was encouraged so they will not remain unproductive and become a burden on the community. The case of Margaret Hogg, who accompanied her husband on foreign trips and acted as a merchant, demonstrates the case of women's active participation in export trade.
