Glasgow Women

My current series highlights the struggles and achievements of women in Glasgow, offering a celebration of their lives, as well as acknowledging their historical and cultural contribution to the city. Forging links between Glasgow women's history and women in the city today, the work explores the legacy of Isabella Elder, one of Glasgow's greatest philanthropists. Elder took a particular interest in women's education as well as the welfare of the women of Govan. By examining diverse communities of women involved in women's groups and societies in these areas now, the work aims to discover if Elder's legacy of female empowerment is still apparent 135 years later.
