HERSTORY: INFLUENTIAL WOMEN OF THE SOUTH SIDE
Tue 8 August 2017, 18:00 – 19:30 BST
The History Girls Frae Scotland will delve into the fascinating history of the South-Side through its female inhabitants. Rachael and Karen will discuss the colourful, energetic and powerful female personalities of Glasgow’s Southside including artists, designers as well as female ship-yard workers, activists and wealthy philanthropists, in order to create a HERstory of this side of the city. After meeting at work in the Heritage Sector, Karen and Rachael’s friendship blossomed over a love of tea and old stuff. Both women have a huge amount of passion for the celebration and promotion of Scottish heritage, culture and history. So much so, both women were awarded scholarships in 2016 to continue their (individual but overlapping) research at PhD level at the University of Glasgow and The Glasgow School of Art.
