In 2014 Glasgow Women’s Library (GWL) was invited by Wellcome Collection to collaborate in a programme on the theme of sexology. Our ‘big sister’ archive was celebrating the launch of its new gallery showcasing its expansive and fascinating collection on everything sexual but was keen to get other (geographical) perspectives on the topic. This was an opportunity for us to complement Wellcome Collection’s comprehensive survey, entitled The Institute of Sexology, and reflect on and showcase the women-focussed and eclectic nature of our library, museum and archive materials. We were also keen to add enduring value to the process, principally in creating a publication and a related short film that captured the essence of our programme. This season, Sex in the Women’s Library, challenged us to discover, amongst other things, What Women Talk About When They Talk About Sex.
