March of Women Research Ephemera

Archive Collection

Scope and Content

The collection includes promotional materials, programmes and press cuttings from the 'March of Women' event held in 2015 as well as some related ephemera.

Administrative / Biographical History

In March 2015 a procession of women from Glasgow and beyond gathered at Glasgow Women's Library to march through the streets of Bridgeton to celebrate the achievements of women past and present.

This dramatic intervention took its inspiration from A Pageant of Great Women by Cicely Hamilton, written 100 years ago. Over a hundred women from all walks of life across Scotland took part.

This collection documents the ephemera resulting from the pageant as well as subsequent performative and research outputs.
