Glasgow Women 
The struggles and achievements of Glasgow women are highlighted within this project, 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; an area of multiple deprivation within the city.  
By examining diverse communities of women in these areas now, my project aims to discover if Elder’s legacy of female empowerment is still apparent 135 years later.
