This week we are celebrating adding the 900th memorial to our project ‘Mapping Memorials to Women in Scotland‘.
Steering Committee member Alison McCall was quoted in an article in The Scotsman:
“This is often known as the story of ‘the snail and the ginger beer’, but what this does is take the emphasis off the snail and put it back onto this determined woman, who pushed this through and changed consumer law. I studied law and this is one of the first cases you learn about, as it is so distinctive.”
“Mrs Donoghue was a single mother, with one living child who had left her husband and didn’t have a lot of money behind her. But she fought this case through.”
