STORY DESCRIPTION

Born in the dockside slum of Kinning Park in Glasgow three fifteen year old girls are working in Grey Dunns Biscuit Factory, they have been inseparable since their first day at school. Each one approaches life in an entirely different way and manage to rise.

They sing such songs as, Oh, shes nae Hairy Mary, shes yir maw, Oh, shes nae Hairy Mary but your Das a great big fairy, but shes nae Hairy, Mary, shes yir maw, and, When I was single I used tae comb my hair, noo that Im married I dont hiv time tae spare, its a life, its a life, its a weary, weary life, its better tae be single than tae be a married wife.

And lines such as, If you speak tae me like that again, I will spit in your eye and flood your memory.

Gertie adopts Trade Unionism, Liz opens a boutique, Alice persuades a fella to finance her with a Silicone Breast implant and moves into the entertainment industry.

We follow them through the fifties with The Second Sex, Breach of Promise of Marriage, knitting needle abortions and Silicone implants: the sixties with Saline implants, Julian of Norwich, The Pill, Sexual Freedom, The Equal Pay Act of 1963 intended to give women equal pay but never did and the Sexual Offences Act of 1967 allowing gay men to walk the streets without going to jail: the seventies with The Female Eunuch, Pussy Whipping being aired, the eighties with Strikes galore, the nineties with Womens Liberation, again.

They are now seeing everything destroyed by the misogynistic President of the United States Donald Trump who is labelling all women as whores which, presumably, includes his own Scottish mother. Gertie thought that he must be up nights thinking, Tis Pity shes a whore.
