Badges of Honour

How Badge-Wearing Women Changed the World

Badges of Honour is a new Heritage Lottery funded project from Glasgow Women’s Library which will show how women wearing badges have changed the world!

Badges of Honour from Glasgow Women’s Library on Vimeo.

The Library has a fantastic badge collection which charts the campaigns women have been involved with, from the right to vote to peace activism, anti-Apartheid to domestic violence. With your help, we would like to collect even more and, most importantly, capture the stories behind these badges.

Contact us to show and tell us about your badge history (we want to see your ballroom dancing or bowling medals too!) including badges you have loved and lost.

Join us this Mayday at the Badges of Honour Exhibition Launch on Thursday 1st May at 6pm. The Exhibition will then run to Friday 23rd May at the Library.
