A walk through the Women’s History Museum

Being seven days into Women’s History Month and only a couple of days from International Women’s Day, EN4 News headed to the Glasgow Women’s Library to learn more about what we are celebrating.

The library, situated in the city’s East End, is the only accredited women’s museum in the UK that is solely dedicated to celebrating the work of women.

A firm favourite within the library is an umbrella stand at the reception that was painted by suffragettes.

The library provides several services including free membership, book borrowing and events for women across the year.

We were fortunate to witness an event called Story Café, an intimate gathering of females reading to each other.

Archives from magazines, newspapers, posters and memorabilia of women throughout history are held upstairs in the library.

The Glasgow Women’s Library is a well-loved community hub for women of all ages and backgrounds to congregate, share ideas or simply have some alone time.
