Our Autumn/Winter Programme for 2015 is here!

If you haven’t had a chance to pop in to visit and pick up your printed programme full of events, activities and exhibitions to take you to the end of the year, then you can download a digital copy of our programme here.

ProgrammeCoverAutumn2015You can look through our online calendar and find out even more about what’s coming up as well as book onto anything that takes your fancy. See the Events Calendar here.

Why not join us over our Love is… film screening season -we’re showing Orlando, Bride and Prejudice, Rebecca and Wuthering Heights? Or stop in for Doors Open Day in September to find out more about everything that happens at GWL. If you’re interested in learning more about women’s history in Glasgow and beyond then book on to our Heritage Walks or Heritage Bike Rides or check out our Women Make History events.

We also have two events that help us more fully consider women’s lives in WW1. In September as part of European Researchers Night we invite you to a series of short talks by university researchers followed up by a Q&A session. Then on Saturday 14th November we host Wait, Weep and be Worthy as part of the Being Human Festival. This full day symposium combines talks by well-known speakers including Kate Adie, Sarah Waters, Laura Rattray and Jane Potter, alongside a pageant representing women of the war, an exhibition, and creative writing and rosette making workshops.

There is so much on offer and we’d love you to get involved, so get your diary ready and make some plans for this Autumn!

    My mother and her twin sister, (born in 1925) both now sadly deceased, were brought up in the Bridgeton area in a tenement in Savoy Street. Times were hard, they were brought up by my gran who was a single parent. At 14 they were sent out to work, just at the start of the war. My aunt worked in the tie factory in Bridgeton for some time, and my mother was a florist for many years in dale street near the Barrows again for several years. The owner of the flower shop was a woman named Jess who was very good to my mum. When I left school in 1968 I was a library assistant with Glasgow Public Libraries, in Whiteinch and Woodside libraries. Now live in Manchester, was Probation Officer in a woman’s prison for some years, and so thrilled to learn of your library for women. I hope to visit when next in Glasgow. Good Luck and I will contribute to your library when I visit. Good luck and well done
