I Belong To Glasgow celebrates its women

In the last of the series of I Belong To Glasgow, Elaine C Smith takes to the streets of the city to give her view of Glasgow. She had one stipulation "I want to celebrate the women of Glasgow". 

So gathering as many examples of brilliant women who have become part of Glasgow's fabric as possible, we took over the city centre big screens and broadcast their portraits to onlookers below. These are women who have made a difference in all walks of life from charity runners, community organisers and politicians to musicians, writers and artists.
