Project marks roleof wummin
Stirling youth groups have been taking part in a partnership to celebrate 100 years since women first received the vote.
‘Youngwummin’, part of Scotland’s Year of Young People, involves the National Library of Scotland in Edinburgh and agency YouthLink and reflects on women’s rights post WW1.
Themes include Women, Work and Home, Women’s Suffrage and the War, and Scottish Women’s Hospitals.
Deborah Anderson, of Stirling Council, said: “The seeds of feminism, equality and history have been planted firmly in young people’s minds and I believe well after this project ends, young people involved will continue to learn and be passionate about the cause of women’s equality, both past and present.”
National Library exhibitions assistant Sarah Wilmott said: “It’s been a privilege to collaborate with YouthLink and young people from across Scotland on this project.
“It was fascinating to see how these young researchers engaged and responded to our collections in such creative ways.”
