About

One hundred striking images of modern Britons capturing the pioneering spirit - yet also the nature of the individual woman. These powerful portraits of UK Women by renowned British photographer Anita Corbin, provoke inquiry providing inspiration and insight. Taken over a period of 10 years, the 100 portraits reflect women pioneers from all walks of life from beatboxing to bomb detection, computing to cricket!

The visually arresting and immersive exhibition features images of celebrities, famous personalities and unsung heroines from across the decades – ranging from Seventies rocker Suzi Quatro to Olympian Boxer, Nicola Adams. Through to ‘ordinary women’ such as Brigadier Sharon Nesmith, the first woman commander of a brigade of 5000 front line troops and Baroness Patricia Scotland, First Woman Attorney General.
