Mary Rough Barbour (20 February 1875 – 2 April 1958) was a Scottish political activist, community leader and social policy pioneer, local councillor and magistrate who played an outstanding part in the Red Clydeside movement in the early 20th century.
She died, aged 83, in 1958. Her funeral took place at Craigton Crematorium in Govan. The song “Mrs Barbour’s Army” by Alistair Hulett is about Mary Barbour’s organisation of the 1915 rent strike. Mary Barbour’s statue is situated just outside Govan subway station.
