This Is Who We Are

This Is Who We Are is Glasgow Women’s Library’s series of talks and walks to help us celebrate moving to our new home.

As well as giving an entertaining and informative introduction to who we are and what we do, we will also be introducing some of the Firebrand Women from our collection: the Scottish Suffragettes who threw eggs at politicians, vandalised mansions and public buildings across Scotland and went on hunger strike in Duke Street Prison; the Peace Campaigners who campaigned at Faslane and Greenham Common, giving up home comforts to challenge the Government’s assertion that nuclear weapons were necessary to protect people; the Striking Women who played a groundbreaking role in shaping political and social change during the Rent Strikes and on Red Clydeside.

Come along to any or all of the events, meet the GWL team, celebrate with us and discover some inspirational women.
