Following the huge success of our West End Women’s Heritage Walk and Map the Women Make History team has made history again in developing the first podcast version of a women’s heritage walk in Glasgow. This fantastic resource was launched on the Centenary Celebration of International Women’s Day

As part of the West End Festival Women Make History will be running the West End Women’s Heritage Silent Walk on Sunday 19 June 2011 at 2pm

This podcast reveals a hidden history of the West End: from pipe-smoking forewomen to revolting schoolmistresses. A unique and inspiring insight into the hitherto unsung women who made the West End. Just visit the website to purchase a copy for the introductory price of £3.
