Glasgow women win again

They take the editor’s award in the city’s Evening Times Scotswoman of the Year awards

The Glasgow women who won an historic equal pay battle last month have won again – this time at the Scotswoman of the Year 2018 awards.

The awards are run by Glasgow’s evening paper, the Evening Times, and the women were awarded the editor’s award.

The ceremony was held at the city’s Grand Central Hotel last night, where Eva Bolander, the Lord Provost of Glasgow, accepted the award on behalf of the women, who had fought for 12 years to win equal pay.

“It is humbling for me, and a real honour, to accept this award on behalf of Glasgow’s women,” she said.

“This win was a mutual win for both the campaigners and the City Council when we came to an agreement after such a long fight.

“Glasgow women are strong, the salt of the earth.”
