There was David. There was Goliath…and there was Glasgow City Council.
But there was “Oor Frances”…an ordinary woman, working a shift, doing some overtime, making ends meet. Like thousands of others.
Only to find out, she had been underpaid by thousands…just like the rest of “the workers”. Why? Because she’s a woman. Now as you can imagine, “Oor Frances” was just a wee bit upset to find out that her male counterparts were being paid better & bigger money. “Sorry, honey! Showz the money” was her response and a call to action resonated with thousands and thousands of workers across Glasgow City Council: women (and a few men!) fighting for the right…to party?

Join “Oor Frances” as she relives the fight for Equal Pay that would result in strike action…and there’s nothing scarier than a bunch of striking wummin!
