Five youth groups across Scotland have turned detective to discover influential and unrecognised women from their communities, past and present.
From historical heroines to firebrand campaigners and women who’ve changed the face of contemporary Scotland, learn about women who’ve inspired, surprised and motivated young people today as they share their research with us in a new exhibition.
At this launch, we’ll hear from some of the young heritage researchers about our Scotswummin project.
“Women have made an enormous contribution across medicine, arts, law, every walk of life and it’s really important that we celebrate these achievements, for their own sake but also to inspire the next generation. I am a huge supporter of the #scotswummin campaign that is being led by young people because it’s so important that we give women and young girls the same opportunities in life as men and young boys.” Nicola Sturgeon, Scotland’s First Minister
Scotswummin has been delivered by YouthLink Scotland in partnership with Glasgow Women's Library and with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund.Book here
