Event description

Description

Five youth groups across Scotland have turned detectives 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 the 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

This youth-led research project, Scotswummin, has been delivered by YouthLink Scotland in partnership with Glasgow Women's Library and with funding from the Heritage Lotttery Fund.

As part of Scotswummin we will be sharing our new research findings on “Youth Work’s Contribution to the Women’s Movement Since 1850”. Based on a historical review and original interviews with the youth work sector, this heritage report will be donated to Glasgow Women’s Library and will form part of the final exhibition. Copies will be available in print or to download via the scotswummin website.
