209 Women

209 Women End Card

Fantastic to be part of the 209 Women project, photographing Rachel Reeves, MP for Leeds West.

Marking 100 years since some women achieved the right to vote, Open Eye Gallery in collaboration with photographer Hilary Wood are replacing the entire contemporary art collection at the Palace of Westminster with new photos of every female MP, shot exclusively by female photographers, and making it free and open to the public.

On 14th December 1918 women voted for the first time, and in the same year the first female MP was elected. 100 years on, this project marks that significant moment in history, whilst also highlighting the ongoing need for gender equality across society.209 Women is a national artist-led project that aims to champion the visibility of women, particularly in male-dominated environments, and challenges issues surrounding gender inequality. The exhibition will hang in the Palace of Westminster from 14th December to February 2019.
