Sue John (pronouns: she/her) was born in Manchester and moved to Glasgow in 1989 to study Fine Art Printmaking at Glasgow School of Art, from where is graduated in 1993.

She has been a feminist and LGBT activist for nearly 40 years and became involved with Glasgow Women's Library in 1993 as a volunteer, before becoming a paid worker nearly a decade later.

Sue is now part of Glasgow Women's Library's Senior Management Team, providing strong and inspiring feminist leadership, and ensuring that GWL works as a coherent team across the different strands of its work as a library, an archive, a museum and an innovative learning resource. She takes a lead role in the delivery of the organisation's Strategic Plan and the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan, as well as overseeing operations, collections, building management, museum accreditations, enterprise and funding.

Since January 2021, Sue has become part-time at GWL as she embarked on part-time study as a PhD History Researcher at the University of Glasgow, with the topic 'Satire and Suffragettes: Women's Rights in Everyday Material Culture in Britain, 1900–1930'.
