209 Women at Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool, Waterfront 1 March — 14 April 2019 Entrance is free

To mark 100 years since some women achieved the right to vote, an all-female photography initiative has created new portraits of the UK’s women MPs. ‘209 Women’ is a national artist-led project to champion the visibility of women, particularly in environments that are still largely male-dominated. It launched in the Houses of Parliament on Dec 14, 100 years to the day since the first women voted, before travelling to Open Eye Gallery in Liverpool where it will open this March.
