Last year Glasgow Women's Aid ran a storytelling and art project with women who had accessed our service. The result of this is a book called 'A Way With Words'. The book was launched at Glasgow Women's Library on International Women's Day by Nicola Sturgeon. The book is available to buy at £5 per copy. We have also had posters made of some images with their accompanying words which are also available to purchase.

OBR events were held in over 200 countries to demand an end to Gender Based Violence. 1:3 women will experience rape and sexual assault at some point in their lives.
