Description

Petticoats and pinnacles

Curator Paula Williams explores the National Library of Scotland's collections to uncover the hidden history of Scottish women mountaineers. As artists, writers, explorers and climbers, they have pushed frontiers and challenged and changed social attitudes. In this popular illustrated talk Paula uses extracts from their own books, as well as newspapers and film. She shows how Scottish women have picked up their skirts and scaled the heights.
