First Women UK are launching a free photography exhibition celebrating 100 fiercely phenomenal women from 20th July until 22nd August taking place in the Dyson Building of the Royal College of Art, London. Anita Corbin, Photographer and Creative Director, First Women UK had a spectacular vision ten years ago wanting to showcase trailblazing women and share their stories and inspiration with as many people as possible. Anita is the first woman to photograph a 100 first women “to inspire future generations and shine the light on women who have pushed the boundaries since we won the right to vote 100 years ago”.
