209 Women is a national artist-led project founded by Hilary Wood that aims to champion the visibility of women, particularly in male-dominated environments.

One hundred years after women first gained the right to sit in Parliament as MPs, 209 Women was first unveiled in time for the anniversary of the first election where some women could cast a vote. The exhibition includes portraits of female MPs, all photographed by female photographers in an all-female initiative.

The exhibition marks this significant moment in history whilst also highlighting the ongoing need for further gender equality across society. A collective of women photographers from all across the UK formed, volunteering their time to make and mark history, celebrating the centenary of women’s suffrage and championing the visibility of women, particularly in environments that are still largely male-dominated.

The exhibition is curated by Hilary Wood (Founder/Director of 209 Women and photographer), Tracy Marshall (Director of Development and Partnerships at Open Eye Gallery), Cheryl Newman (Artist, curator and former Director of Photography of the Telegraph magazine), and Lisa Tse (Brand Consultant, TV Producer and founder of women’s club The Sorority), and supported by Ambassador Rosemary Reed, Executive (Executive Producer and Founder of Power of Women series).
