West End Women’s Heritage Walk

13th May, 2017 at 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

£6 – £10
The Suffrage Oak

Glasgow’s West End- the home of rousing radicals, tireless teachers and steadfast suffragettes!

West End Women’s Heritage Walk, Saturday 13th May, 2pm to 4pm

The Suffrage Oak
The Suffrage Oak. It was planted in 1918 to celebrate women’s first opportunity to vote in a general election. There is an unassuming brass plaque behind the oak.

Our West End Women’s Heritage Walk shares the story of remarkable, unsung women; a story of protesting, rallying activists, and of the rent strikers and “wild women” who built this part of Glasgow- and whose contribution can still be felt today.  Hear about formidable Rachel Johnston, a pipe-smoking labourer and special constable, and a pay a visit to the Suffrage Oak on Kelvinway.

It’s time to reveal the hidden history of the women of the West End…
