The influential role of Women on Red Clydeside from 1910 to 1920 has been substantially overlooked throughout the twentieth century.  Increasingly however, historians are beginning to recognise the prominent work of women during this period of vast political change and upheaval. Glasgow Caledonian University’s Research Collections is home to an abundance of rich resources on this period.  These have been examined and catalogued in order to compile a finding aid to assist future research of Women on Red Clydeside.
