Red Clydeside & The Scottish Suffragettes

The Scottish Suffragettes by Leah Leneman


This year we celebrate the centenary of women over 30 in Britain finally winning the right to vote but what links Red Clydeside & the Scottish (and English) suffragettes? Quite a lot, actually. You can read about the connections in the new paperback edition of When the Clyde Ran Red: A Social History of Red Clydeside.

The book is available for pre-order now and I’ll be speaking about it at Aye Write! at the Mitchell Library in Glasgow on Sunday 18th March from 1.15 – 2.15. I’ll be on with Natalie Fergie, who will be talking about her novel, The Sewing Machine.

Tickets for Aye Write! available here.
