The Feartie Creates

Ever wondered about taking part in a Creative Writing for Fearties session? Want some idea of what happens in the sessions? Exchanging ideas, through writing. Story-telling begins. In bygone girls annuals we find inspiration. And writing begins!

Women Making It and Seeing Things

I went (with Seeing Things), I saw (the Glasgow Zine Festival) and I created a zine (at Women Making It).

Inspirational Herstories

We have a wide selection of books about the suffrage movement. This blog is about 3 of them, and they are:-
* “From Liberal to Labour With Women’s Suffrage: The Story of Catherine Marshall” – which is a good read but a wee bit academic.
* “The Right To Vote An’ A’ That: a hundred years of Scottish Women Singing” – which is a little lyric book which singers could take out and about with them.
* “Caroline Phillips: Aberdeen Suffragette and Journalist” – which is a champion to Aberdeen Art Gallery’s unique correspondence collection.
All of them illustrate the important contribution women have made to history.
