What Women Talk About When They Talk About Sex

7th May, 2015 at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm


Sex in the Women’s Library

Sex-in-the-Women's-LibraryGlasgow Women’s Library is full of fascinating, thrilling and ground-breaking objects, images, books and manifestos that map the world of sex, sexual identity and sexuality, from pioneering gender-bending novels like Virginia Woolf’s Orlando and Spare Rib’s take on women’s rights to sexual power and pleasure to the wealth of ephemera charting the campaign trails to liberate women’s sexuality.

Starting this Spring and extending into Summer 2015, as part of The Wellcome Collection’s Sexology Season we will be offering a feast of fact, fiction and films all about sex to explore and enjoy.

All the Sex in the Women’s Library workshops and screenings are free to attend and open to women only.

What Women Talk About When They Talk About Sex

These lively, open, judgement-free facilitated discussion groups are for anyone who wants to share, in a safe space, honest insights into how sex, sexual identity or sexuality figures in their lives.

In Scotland in 2015 what do women feel about their bodies, their relationships, their passions and pleasures? Who are the subjects of our desires and what are the costs for women today of naming and claiming them? These discussion groups will use the historical model of feminist Consciousness Raising groups to explore the personal and political dimensions of sex in our lives.


These are sessions taking place on a Thursday evening:

Thursdays, 7th & 21st May, 4th June*, 9th and 23rd July  2015
6pm to 7.30pm
*please note there has been a date change from the 18th June to the 23rd July

The sessions are free of charge and you can book below (you will be taken through the shopping cart but no charge will be made) or you can call us on 0141 550 2267.
