Glasgow Girls is based on the true story of seven teenagers from Drumchapel, whose lives changed forever in 2005 when their school friend and her asylum-seeking family were forcibly taken from their home to be deported.

The self-titled ‘Glasgow Girls’ took a stand to fight for her rights, and ultimately the rights of all children of asylum seekers.
They inspired a whole community to unite behind its residents, and later in 2010, inspired theatre maker Cora Bissett to turn their incredible story into a musical.
The award-winning show has played across the UK to sold-out audiences, who relate to the Glasgow Girls mantra of ‘heartily welcoming all cultures to their country’.
Many of the real Glasgow Girls have now gone on to work in politics, community work and human rights, including:
• Roza Salih: graduated from Strathclyde University after studying Law and Politics and is now working as office manager for Chris Stephens MP for Glasgow South West
• Emma Clifford Bell: now a journalist for BBC Scotland and works hard to get 'real people' on the telly.
• Jennifer McCarron: works as a Child Development Officer for Glasgow Clyde College and studying BA Childhood Practice at Strathclyde University;
• Amal Azzudin: graduated with a Masters in Human Rights and International Politics and works for the Mental Health Foundation. She has worked voluntarily in refugee camps in Greece, was honoured at the Saltire Society’s Outstanding Women of Scotland 2016 and won the University of Glasgow's World Changing Alumni award 2018.
