THE hunt is on for the greatest Glaswegian of all time.

Who do you think should be number one?

Throughout July, we are revealing the top 50 men and women who have put Glasgow on the map through politics, the arts, business, science, sport and more.

Once all 50 have been revealed, it’s over to you – we will be launching a public vote to find out who you think should be crowned Greatest Glaswegian.

Today, we reveal the next two contenders for the title – suffragette Helen Crawfurd and Scotland’s first female Lord Advocate and Solicitor General, Dame Elish Angiolini.

Don’t miss tomorrow’s Evening Times, when another duo in the running will be revealed.

Along with Mary Barbour, from Kilbarchan in Renfrewshire and Springburn’s Agnes Dollan, Helen Crawfurd set up the Glasgow Women’s Housing Association, and co-ordinated the successful Rent Strikes of 1915, which led to the victory of the Rent Restriction Act.

She was also a key architect in the launch of the Women’s Peace Crusade, which included public speaking, huge demonstrations and protests involving women with husbands and sons killed in the war.

Helen was born in the Gorbals and grew up there and in Ipswich before returning to her home city at the age of 17.

She was appalled by the hardships endured by the women of Glasgow from an early age and her desire to fight injustice led her to join the Women’s Social and Political Union in 1910. Like many other women, she was jailed and badly treated for standing up for women’s right to vote.

Thanks to Helen, and many like her, women rose up, found their own voices and spoke out about the injustices they suffered.

Former Evening Times Scotswoman of the Year Editor’s Award winner and smasher-of-glass-ceilings Dame Elish Angiolini is from Govan.

The visionary solicitor, one of Scotland’s top legal minds, has had an impressive career. As Head of Policy in the Crown Office, she helped the department prepare for devolution and the introduction of the European Convention on Human Rights.

She was the first woman appointed as Regional Procurator Fiscal for Grampian and the Highlands and Islands, the first female Solicitor General for Scotland and the first female Lord Advocate.

While in office she took forward the most wide-ranging programme of modernisation in the department’s history.

Dame Elish’s influence in the area of domestic violence is outstanding and the review she instigated, of the investigation and prosecution of rape and sexual crimes resulted in profound changes to prosecution practices, including the establishment of the specialist National Sexual Crimes Unit, the first of its type in Europe.
