Mairi Kidd with Sara Sheridan - Warriors, Witches and Damn Rebel Bitches

Mairi Kidd with Sara Sheridan - Warriors, Witches and Damn Rebel Bitches

Inspirational and fierce in every sense, this event will fire you up to face your own modern-day dilemmas with serious style.  For most of recorded history, women have been sidelined, if not silenced, by men who named the built environment after themselves. Now is the time to look unflinchingly at Scotland's heritage and bring those women who have been ignored to light.  Can you imagine a different Scotland, a Scotland where women are commemorated in statues and streets and buildings - even in the hills and valleys? This is a guidebook to that alternative nation, where the cave on Staffa is named after Malvina rather than Fingal, and Arthur's Seat isn't Arthur's, it belongs to St Triduana. You arrive into Dundee at Slessor Station and the Victorian monument on Stirling's Abbey Hill interprets national identity through the women who ran hospitals during the First World War. The West Highland Way ends at Fort Mary. The Old Lady of Hoy is a prominent Orkney landmark. And the plinths in central Glasgow proudly display statues of suffragettes.  In this guide fictional streets, buildings, statues and monuments are dedicated to real women, telling their often unknown stories.
