‘It is my hope that women who dream big will look at these pictures and see that they are not alone.’ Anita Corbin
Discover and celebrate 100 pioneering women of the 21st century in this major exhibition by acclaimed photographer Anita Corbin. These striking images capture an impressive record of female achievement, from beatboxing to bomb detection, computing to cricket, blast furnaces to boardrooms.
This exhibition features iconic portraits of celebrities, unsung heroines from across the decades, and ‘ordinary’ women doing extraordinary jobs. Including seventies rocker Suzi Quatro, Olympian Boxer Nicola Adams OBE, Lady Brenda Hale of the Supreme Court and football manager Hope Powell.
Over the run of 100 First Women we’ll be posting more reflections on the themes of the exhibition on our blog.
