Glasgow - One Year On!



What a difference a year makes - because this time last year no one had even heard of Coronavirus.

Instead readers were up in arms about the Evening Times' bizarre decision to exclude Frances Stojilkovic and Glasgow's equal pay claimants from its shortlist for selecting 'Scotswoman of the Year 2018'.   

  

SOTY 2018 - Own Goal by Evening Times (28/02/19)



Here are two more very pointed comments about the Evening Times failure to include Glasgow's Frances Stojilkovic on its shortlist for Scotswoman of the Year 2018.


Really disappointing we all know how many women, the hardest working women in this city, nominated Frances

J

‘Is it that they are too working class to be a proper feminist rights story, and too female to be a proper workers rights story’...?


C

I couldn't agree more and I have to say I think it's a terrible own goal by the newspaper.

I'm sure that the thousands Glasgow City Council workers who have been fighting for their rights to equal pay for the past 12 years will be deeply unimpressed.

I'm sure Frances S won't be losing any sleep at not reaching the shortlist for Scotswoman of the Year 2018, but the more you think about it the more outrageous it is that such an outstanding local candidate from Glasgow wasn't deemed worthy of consideration.

A bit of a joke and a terrible own goal by the newspaper if you ask me and I'm pleased to say that lots of people on Facebook seem to agree!


Just read the list of finalists for Scotswoman of The Year and unfortunately our wee Frances is not on it. Frances will forever be our Scotswoman of The Year for all her hard work
