Help us put Scotland’s women on the map

Catherine Sinclair Monument, Queen Street, Edinburgh

Catherine Sinclair Monument

The Women of Scotland web site was set up with the intent of locating and mapping memorials to women throughout our country. The site includes a map of over 300 memorials to women who have had some influence on life in Scotland. And what a diverse list it is, including everyone from Flora MacDonald to Anne Frank to Linda McCartney – even Minnie the Minx is in there!

The project relies on volunteers using their local knowledge to track down memorials to add to the list. Interested in getting involved?

Come along to a special training session at Central Library on Wednesday 15th May from 1.30 – 3.30pm where experts from the Glasgow Women’s Library will introduce you to some of the women already featured on the site and also get you started in logging any memorials you know of in your locality.

Book online to register for the session. We look forward to seeing you there!
