Dangerous Coats

“Someone clever once said
Women were not allowed pockets
In case they carried leaflets
To spread sedition
Which means unrest
To you and me
A grandiose word
For commonsense
So ladies, start sewing
Dangerous coats
Made of pockets and sedition”

– Sharon Owens

In collaboration with:
Glasgow Women’s Library, Fanny Riot, Cathkin Blazes, GAMIS, Culture Collective, Feminist Exchange Network, The Bowling Green and Crossroads Youth and Community Association

With Samantha Asumadu, Dr Thelma Okey-Adibe, Mina Heidari-White, Teresa Banos, Susan Campbell
