Exhibition and film

On 23rd July 1916 the first Women’s Peace Crusade marched from George Square to Glasgow Green, drawing crowds of thousands. This Crusade grew into a mass international women’s peace movement. Since early 2016 a group of Glasgow Women’s Library staff, learners and volunteers have been exploring some of the key protagonists and their remarkable achievements. 100 years later to the day they will lead a procession in the Crusaders’ footsteps from Glasgow Green to Glasgow Women’s Library and will launch an exhibition that places the Peace Crusaders in the wider picture and includes a newly realised series of ‘portraits’. The exhibition launch will be followed by a screening of GWL and RCS’s barnstorming film, MARCH.

Schedule for the Launch event on 23rd July:

3pm Assemble outside People’s Palace Winter Gardens entrance, Glasgow Green, for short performance and guided walk to Glasgow Women’s Library

5pm Exhibition launch with refreshments

6pm Screening of film, MARCH
