Forward! Remembering Women Peace Crusaders

25 July 2016 until 31 August 2016
Glasgow Women's Library

This exhibition draws on research undertaken into some of the key figures of the Women’s Peace Crusade, highlighting a sample of some of their incredible achievements, from Glasgow based activists such as Helen Crawfurd, to national and international figures such as Rosa Manus, the research. Curated by Fiona Dean and developed in collaboration with staff, learners and volunteers at Glasgow Women’s Library, Forward! aims to bring the voices and lives of a selection of women of the Peace Crusades into GWL – directly into the former Gentleman’s reading room of Bridgeton Library, a space that would not have been accessible to women of that time. The exhibition includes a newly realised series of portraits by Sarah Amy Fishlock.

The Launch Event on Saturday 23rd July begins at 3pm with a short performance and procession in the Crusaders’ footsteps from Glasgow Green to the exhibition at GWL. The exhibition launch will be followed by a screening of GWL and RCS’s barnstorming film, MARCH, starting at 6pm.
