From THESE STREETS WERE MADE FOR WALKING

9th June, GLASGOW, Queens Park, 23.45pm
These Streets Were Made for Walking
After an increasing number of serious sexual assaults on women in Glasgow, including most recently within one week of each other, a woman being subjected to gang rape in Toryglen and another young woman being raped in Govanhill, it has become clear that something has to be done to send a message to both the perpetrators and the authorities that we will not stand by and let this massive problem within our city be ignored…..

From GLASGOW WOMEN’S LIBRARY

16th June, EDINBURGH, 1pm – 3pm, Edinburgh Central Library
Mixing the Colours: Women Speaking about Sectarianism READING WORKSHOP
Between November 2013 and March 2014 writer and GWL Reader In Residence Magi Gibson supported and facilitated women’s discussion and creative writing on the theme of sectarianism and how it affects women in Scotland, their families and communities. This body of work is of particular importance being that there has been very little written by women on a subject that goes right to the heart of Scottish religious and political history. As part of the Harpies, Fechters and Quines Festival in Edinburgh GWL’s Rachel Thain-Gray and Morag Smith will read stories and poems, which brim with women – the protagonists of their own lives – who observe, feel and fight the imposition of intra-chritistian sectarianism in child- and adulthood.
