Key components of the exhibition, including a series of banners reflecting the spirit of the Suffragette movement and early 20th Century campaigners, were the culmination of a UWS research project, led by Professor Katarzyna Kosmala from the University’s highly regarded School of Business and Creative Industries.
These will be permanently donated to the museum, while a documentary film by UWS academic Tony Grace will also be shown as part of the exhibition.
Professor Kosmala said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be involved in this fantastic exhibition, telling the story of a remarkable and inspirational woman.
“As well as drawing on Dorothée’s success, the exhibition will reveal stories of ‘anonymous’ female engineers, attributing names to those who took up training positions with the Galloway Engineering Company.
“These women are role models, and helped pave the way to create a more inclusive and diverse industry.”
