Event description

Description


Come join us in discovering, exploring and celebrating the history of Women's Aid in Scotland at our free full-day project conference!

Using material gathered and produced throughout the Speaking Out: Recalling Women's Aid in Scotland project, including oral histories of women associated with the Women's Aid movement over its 40 plus years of history in Scotland, we'll look at what Women's Aid has meant and still means to both workers and survivors. We'll examine how Women's Aid has changed over the years and how the Speaking Out project has been sharing the history of this incredibly important social movement with the public over the past year and a half.

The day will feature keynote speeches from Dr Lesley Orr, historian, writer and activist, and Lesley Riddoch, journalist, commentator and broadcaster, along with talks from additional speakers, a volunteer panel and a performance by Dundee Women's Aid choir.

Lunch will be provided and a creche will be available at the venue (provided by Rise & Shine Childcare). If you have any special dietary requirements or will be using the creche please contact Emma Gascoigne. A limited number of travel bursaries are available for members from the Women's Aid network. For further information please contact Emma Gascoigne.

The Speaking Out project is a partnership between Scottish Women's Aid, Glasgow Women's Library, Women's History Scotland and the University of Glasgow Centre for Gender History. Speaking Out is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
