"Admitting Women" is a temporary art installation within the College Hall of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow designed by Bespoke Atelier (https://www.bespokeatelier.co.uk/). Gender inequality is a common theme of the heritage of many medical institutions and the College is no different. Although having been established since 1599, the first female fellow of the College wasn't admitted until 1912. Admitting Women addresses the stories of gender inequality from the College's past, focusing on the lives and careers of four women who fought for equality.
