2016 marked 40 years since Scottish Women’s Aid was founded, bringing together a network of local Women’s Aid groups across Scotland. This pioneering movement brought about a sea-change in Scottish society by working to challenge and prevent domestic abuse. The history of Women’s Aid in Scotland is told through the voices of women involved in the movement across the country, from its earliest years onwards.
The exhibition is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund as part of a wider project to record and celebrate the history of Women’s Aid in Scotland. Project partners include Scottish Women’s Aid, Glasgow Women’s Library, Glasgow University’s Centre for Gender History and Women’s History Scotland.

This exhibition showcases some of the photos of the Humans of Stirling project started by University of Stirling student Iris.
"I started Humans of Stirling in the winter of 2014, when I was a second year student at the University of Stirling. I had wanted to make a similar project since 2011, when I first discovered Brandon Stanton's original project for the New York area, but as a result of always moving about and not really living in one place for too long, I was never able to start my own project.
The Stirling community has offered me the means through which I can make my dream a reality and through this platform I have showcased the stories of many beautiful and amazingly talented people. Each portrait tells a story, one which encapsulates a moment in time and place, one in which two strangers can open up to one another, fearless of judgement and eager to share a little bit about their lives."
