Jacki Parry, Women In The City, 2012
Photo-etching on mouldmade paper, 71.5 cm (w) 54cm (h), edition of 20
The focus for Women In the City is provided by the five geographical locations of Glasgow Women’s Library since its inception in Garnethill to its new home in Bridgeton.
Street names have been replaced with those of women whose contribution to the life of the city is acknowledged in the walking tours initiated by GWL. Where a street already has a woman’s name it has been left in.
In the spirit of recent work by Maria Pia Ercolini in Rome and Habiba Sarabi, Governor of Bamian, Afghanistan we should call for the naming of streets in new areas of our towns and cities to reflect the presence of women.
