Showcases the work of 300 women photographers from around the world, from the invention of the medium to the dawn of the 21st century.

As in many fields of art history, the work of women photographers has often been overlooked, and few of their names are now widely recognized. However, women were closely involved in all major photography movements of the 19th and 20th centuries, and have used the camera as a tool for emancipation and experimentation. These are artists who have been documenting, questioning and transforming the world, breaking down social boundaries, challenging gender roles and expressing their imagination and sexuality.
