The artist's original idea for this inkblot-style map of Scotland was to use the names of all the women’s memorials in Scotland. It became a celebration of the qualities of women who have inspired the artist. Words like – inspire, engage, collaboration and strong – are shown hugging Scotland’s coastline. The artist was particularly inspired by the women involved in the 1915 Rent Strike in Glasgow and the political radicalism of the early 20th-century Red Clydeside era.
