Glasgow Women’s Library (GWL) is a vibrant information hub housing a lending library, archive collections, and contemporary and historical artifacts relating to women’s lives, histories and achievements. The Library is a charity that celebrates the lives and achievements of women, champions their historical, cultural and political contributions to Scotland and acts as a catalyst to eradicate the prevalent gender gap that contributes to inequalities. The Lesbian Archive was relocated to GWL in 1995. For more information visit: www.womenslibrary.org.uk
