What About The Women?
A local women's history talk by Anabel Marsh
Maryhill Burgh Halls Trust are delighted to host the “Lost Glasgow – More Than Just Memories” exhibition from 27th November 2017 until 27th February 2018, on loan from Glasgow City Heritage Trust.
To celebrate our local heritage and illuminate the exhibition’s themes, we are presenting a series of talks delving into Glasgow’s dynamic history. The famous Victorian stained glass windows on display at Maryhill Burgh Halls depict Maryhill workers and trades in the busy Victorian era, and tell the story of one of Glasgow’s historic burghs. However, only two of the original 20 panels portray women. This conspicuous lack of representation sparked the interest of local Glasgow Women’s Library and Maryhill Burgh Halls Trust volunteer, Anabel Marsh. She did a lot more digging, and her talk entitled “What About the Women?” highlights the forgotten histories of women in Maryhill and Glasgow, dating back to the 18th century. Join us on to hear Anabel share the stories of Glasgow women in industry, the arts and politics throughout the ages.
