She was among ten Scottish women active in the arts, culture, politics, activism and science who were honoured during a special event held at Glasgow Women’s Library yesterday.

Following an inaugural ceremony in 2015 - when inductees included First Minister Nicola Sturgeon and poet Jackie Kay - members of the public were invited to submit nominations for a third year. The Outstanding Women community aims to recognise and celebrate women who have made a major contribution to Scottish society.
