The Untold Story

April 30, 2017

In Govan attention is being called to the lack of a memorial to lady Dinah Pearce. Amonst her many philanthropic achievements she set up the Peace Institute as a gift to the people of Govan, was a pioneer of "Fresh Air Fortnight" which sent hundreds of sick children to convalesce at the coast or countryside, fought to improve living conditions of the poor and to alleviate hardship. She paid for this statue of her husband to be erected but there is no menmorial to her.

This protest is staged by Sexcentenary, a collective of women who identify as older, committed to the collaborative performance of gender, feminism and ageing.
