5SEEING the Unseen. For too long autistic women and girls have been unseen. Glasgow Women’s Library is screening a powerful and poetic documentary showing the role autism plays in the lives of 17 Icelandic women, and asks why autistic women and girls have remained invisible in society for so long. Answers are offered in the words of the women themselves, and through the insight of specialists experienced in working with autistic women and girls. Seeing the Unseen also looks at how a lack of understanding and proper support negatively affects the wellbeing of these women and their families – autistic women are gifted individuals with many talents that can be of value to society if they are given the chance to share them. The Scottish Women’s Autism Network will introduce the film and lead a Q&A after the screening. All details at womenslibrary.org.uk/event/seeing-the-unseen/
