This Is Who We Are
To celebrate moving into our new home, over the next Autumn months we will be holding a series of talks and walks about who we are and what we do.
We will also be introducing some of the Firebrand Women from our collections: the Suffragettes, the women who were instrumental in the Peace Campaigns, Red Clydeside and the Rent Strikes. In addition to this we will showcase our Badges of Honour and 21 Revolutions projects, and take in a women’s heritage walk of the East End.

Join Women Make History tour guides on our most recently developed Women’s Heritage Walk, grant-aided by Glasgow City Heritage Trust and Historic Glasgow.
Researched by learners and volunteers at the Library, this women’s heritage walk uncovers the hidden heroines of Glasgow’s East End. If you are interested in finding out more about the women who worked in the Templeton factory, Suffragettes who were held in Duke Street Prison, or the woman who set up the Barras (and much more) then this is the perfect way to spend your afternoon.
