There's a Twitter hashtag 'woman won't wheesht' with some great photos.

Well done gutsy Scottish women.

Inspiring! I think I should order some chalk and ribbon halo

What does weesht mean?

candide47 Sun 31-Jan-21 20:55:29

Wheesht means shut up/be silent

Awrite Sun 31-Jan-21 20:55:38

Wheesht means 'shut up'.

Lovely bit of alliteration.

lionheart Sun 31-Jan-21 20:55:40

Shut up or be silent, JellySlice ... (I think)

Love those photos under the hashtag.

teawamutu Sun 31-Jan-21 21:02:57

What are the comments like? Just getting miles of bloody awful clickbait stories.

nancywhisky Sun 31-Jan-21 21:05:16

wheesht is like saying shoosht. smile

JellySlice Sun 31-Jan-21 21:10:30

Well - we won't weesht!

Well done those women.

theskyispink Sun 31-Jan-21 21:10:43

Down now, someone managed to capture them literally erasing women:


JellySlice Sun 31-Jan-21 21:13:14

Doing the cleaning - is that what's called ' living as a woman'?

Alicethroughtheblackmirror Sun 31-Jan-21 21:31:49

Also, those rumours of razors under stickers were finally confirmed!

Scottish women on a roll

Didn't sticker women in the Pentlands also do this 'Women won't Wheesht'! Love it!

Gibbonsgibbonsgibbons Mon 01-Feb-21 01:06:04

It’s being used as a hashtag on Twitter popper smile

Brava, sisters!

Abhannmor Mon 01-Feb-21 11:15:29


What does weesht mean?

Shut up . Probably a corruption of 'éist' , Gaidhlig for ' listen '.

ArabellaScott Mon 01-Feb-21 11:37:59

Any truth in the rumours that women had actually hidden razors under the chalk graffiti?

SlummingAngel Mon 01-Feb-21 15:49:41

Well they were definitely under the stickers 😂

theskyispink Mon 01-Feb-21 16:05:49

I hope the Won't Wheesht women will put up more messages after today's debacle.
