We are #youngwummin


 

Our mission is to give Scots women their rightful place in history

To mark 100 years since the end of World War One, YouthLink Scotland are working with five youth projects and the National Library of Scotland to highlight the incredible Scottish women who helped win the war. We are Youngwummin. And we want you to get involved too.

Share your stories of local women who helped the war effort. Help us give forgotten Scots women their rightful place in our history.
