New poems to mark the centenary of women’s suffrage

2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the first women securing the right to vote in the UK (although it was to take another ten years before women would win equal voting rights with men). To celebrate this milestone, StAnza has paired up with the Glasgow Women’s Library. The library holds a rich archive of objects to do with the history of campaigns for women’s rights, and we’ve commissioned poets to write and respond to artefacts from their Suffragettes' Collections.

In association with Glasgow Women’s Library. GWL celebrates the lives and achievements of women and champions their contribution to Scotland’s culture. GWL is also an accredited museum, home to a lending library and archive and offers an exciting range of events, activities and courses through its learning programmes.
