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.

At WES it's been a mere hundred.
