Rachel Thain-Gray, Development Worker at Glasgow Women’s Library, said:
““The performance is an innovative example of using art for social justice. It was named by one of our participants based on Scotland’s national motto, Nemo me impune lacessit, which translates as No-one who harms me will go unpunished.
“Women tell us that hate crime against them is generally different because usually the abuse is paired with misogyny. A disabled woman, for example, may experience hostility against both her gender and disability at the same time during an incident.”
It was a moving performance that led to interesting group discussions in workshops afterwards. Students and staff worked together to share their experiences of Hate Crime and tried to develop tools for individuals to be able to help those experiencing it.
