1. Welcome to the Women of All Ages Book & Exhibition Project.

The project aims to celebrate the Centerary of some women being granted the right to vote in the UK. We have launched this project in memory of local suffragette and activist Eunice Guthrie Murray.

Helensburgh Heroes, was founded in the belief that everyone has it within them to be a Hero, even if only for one day, and that sometimes all we need is a role model to unlock our potential. A role model from who we can learn and be inspired to emulate – someone like Eunice.

Eunice was also a prolific writer and published many books. She dedicated her 1930 book ‘Scottish Women of Bygone Days’ to ‘To the Women of All Ages who Defied Convention and Held Aloft the Banner of Progress”.

The charity wishes to commemorate Eunice’s life and others like her by creating a book written by 100 local women of all ages, titled: “To the Women of All Ages by Women of All Ages”.

Each contributor – from primary school age to our elder community members – will select an inspirational female role model and write a maximum of 300 words about their nominee and explain their choice.

We are delighted that you are considering contributing to the project.
