Women politicians by women photographers: from '209 Women', 2018
13 Portraits in set
A selection of portraits of women MPs from a larger group of 209 photographs of women MPs by women photographers in an all-female initiative, made 100 years after women first gained the right to sit in Parliament as MPs. Exhibited at Portcullis House in (2018), and the Open Eye Gallery (2019), ‘209 Women’ marked this significant moment in history whilst also highlighting the ongoing need for further gender equality across society. The exhibition was curated by Hilary Wood (Founder/Director of ‘209 Women’ and photographer), Tracy Marshall (Director of Development and Partnerships at Open Eye Gallery), Cheryl Newman (Artist, curator and former Director of Photography of the Telegraph magazine), and Lisa Tse (Brand Consultant, TV Producer and founder of women’s club The Sorority), and supported by Ambassador Rosemary Reed, Executive (Executive Producer and Founder of Power of Women series).
