Ingrid McClements Memorial Award
Ingrid McClements was a lifelong feminist and socialist activist, and a leading figure in voluntary sector development. Following Ingrid’s death in 2008, the Women’s Support Project, in conjunction with Rape Crisis Scotland and WISE Women, established an Ingrid McClements Memorial Award. An Award fund will be used to organise activities in celebration of Ingrid’s life and to commemorate her work.
The Memorial fund will be used in the following ways:
- Challenging male violence
Raising awareness of the cause, extent and impact of gender inequality and violence against women, for example through organisation of debates, presentations, seminars or film screenings.
- Supporting women survivors of violence
Funding direct work with women, particularly women survivors of violence, and prioritising women from the following communities: Disabled, Black and minority ethnic, lesbian, refugee & asylum seeking.
- Funding activities for women that promote independence, education, fun, creativity or networking through social activities, such as reading, singing or gardening.
If you would like to make a donation to the Memorial Award you can donate online. Please consider completing a Gift Aid form - if you are a British taxpayer and you complete a gift aid form then we can increase your donation by claiming back the tax at no additional cost to yourself. Alternatively you can send a cheque to ‘Women’s Support Project IMMA’ to Women`s Support Project, 31 Stockwell Street, Glasgow G1 4RZ.
The below film featuring Ingrid was made by Jan Nimmo for Glasgow Women`s Library, to mark twenty years of Glasgow Women`s Library.
