Paula Williams, Curator of Maps, Mountaineering and Polar collections, will discuss Scottish women mountaineers.
In another chance to hear this popular illustrated talk, Curator Paula Williams will explore the National Library of Scotland’s collections to uncover the hidden history of Scottish women mountaineers. As artists, writers, explorers and climbers they have pushed frontiers and challenged and changed social attitudes. Using extracts from their own books, as well as newspapers and film, Paula will show how Scottish women have picked up their skirts and scaled the heights.
