Sex in the Women’s Library

Glasgow Womens’ Library (GWL) have been an inspiring partner for the Sexology Season. Their programme of exhibitions, films, discussion groups and literature events, drama and creative writing activities has generated a legacy of resources launched 18 September.

The first of these, the GWL publication Sex Between the Covers, samples some of the evocative materials they discovered in their collection, insights from our What Women Talk About When They Talk About Sex discussion groups and new works created for the season.

Read more about the publication:

Next, the Sex in the Women’s Library film gives a flavour of an intense 6 months of activity at the Library.

Watch the film and find out more about its inspiration:

Finally, What Women Talk About When They Talk About Sex are selected podcast recordings of frank, brave and intimate conversations.

"Surprise, surprise. Who knew you could get a group of women together and they’d all say they enjoy sex?"
