209 women in London

Share:

Exactly 100 years after women in Great Britain achieved the right to vote, a photography initiative created new portraits of all 209 women MPs, shot exclusively by women photographers. From today on they are on display in an exhibition in Parliament at Portcullis house.

‘209 Women’ is a national artist-led project to celebrate the centenary of women’s suffrage and champion the visibility of women, particularly in environments that are still largely male-dominated. A collective of 209 women photographers from all across the UK has formed, volunteering their time to make and mark history.

Although the suffrage movement achieved the first votes for women, there is still a long way to go to cement a culture of true gender equality across all spheres of society in the UK, particularly in positions of power. Women MPs only form 32% of the House of Commons.
