The exhibition depicts women’s work, interest and ambition in the genre, looking at the cultural contribution made raising societal problems affecting women. It shows women’s voices heard, bringing issues that concern them out into the public domain.


Glasgow Women’s Library is wheelchair accessible, with lifts to the first floor and the Mezzanine Floor. We have accessible toilets and all the bathrooms are individual closed stalls and are gender neutral. Our larger Events Space is fitted with an induction loop. A portable induction loop is also available.
