Exploring Women's History in East Dunbartonshire - Westerton
Glasgow Women’s Library’s Women ( GWL ) Make History group launched Glasgow’s first Women’s Heritage Walk in June 2007 as part of the West End Festival programme. Since then, they have continued to lead out walks in the West End during the spring and summer months and have expanded their range of guided walks for the general public to include trails in the city centre, walks on specific themes and for specific groups and a walk in the East of the city at the Glasgow Necropolis in partnership with Friends of the Glasgow Necropolis.
We will be working with GWL exploring remembered and forgotten stories about women who made an impact on society and individuals lives in East Dunbartonshire. Each group will produce a physical map of the area pin pointing local women’s stories.
Eventually we hope to have an authority wide virtual map with some potential virtual trails which create new heritage to share with others.
