Happy International Women’s Day!
Wherever you are, here’s wishing you a happy International Women’s Day, and here’s to all the campaigning for women’s rights around the world. As someone who worked in the City during the 80’s and 90’s, I know there’s a long way to go. Having read this article in the Guardian about sexist dress codes, I can’t quite believe that these things are still going on and that women are continuing to have to fight against such offensive attitudes. I remember working in offices where women weren’t allowed to wear trousers, and were routinely patronised and belittled in the most awful way; and that was nearly 30 years ago!
Here are some of the wonderful, successful women I’ve had the pleasure of photographing in my job as a women’s portrait photographer.
