“Merely external emancipation has made of the modern woman an artificial being. Now, woman is confronted with the necessity of emancipating herself from emancipation, if she really desires to be free.” Emma Goldman
Glasgow can boast of a strong tradition of women who have taken the front line when it comes to fighting for better conditions and facing up to oppression. We should continually strive to remember their names and keep their tradition alive we should always be prepared to tell their story, their story is our history. Some were newspaper headlines, others were quietly struggling in the shadows, but fight they did. We could easily fill this blog with their names, however here are just a few, can you add to the list?
Mary Barbour, Helen Crawfurd, Ethel MacDonald, Jenny Patrick, Agnes Dollan.
