A Car for Women and Other Stories

Launch 16:30 to 18:00 Friday 22nd February
Exhibition 10:00 to 17:00 Monday 25th February

City Art Centre, Edinburgh  EH1 1DE

The exhibition explores the life of Dorothée Pullinger and the other 'girl engineers' who sought professional engineering training in Galloway during WW1. They went on to produce the Galloway car, described as 'a car made by ladies for others of their sex'. A surviving model can be seen at the Riverside Museum in Glasgow. These audacious women were pioneers in areas which are still problematic for women's participation today.

A changemaker is one who desires change in the world and, by gathering knowledge and resources, makes that change happen.

Women engineers and scientists have been Changemakers for society for hundreds of years. Legal restrictions on women working meant that it wasn’t until after the first world war and the suffragette movement that women could start to seriously fulfill their passions for making, creating and improving the lives of people through engineering and technology. At WES it's been a mere hundred.
