f22 launches today to coincide with International Women's Day!
Over the last year there has been a surge in photography groups,
organisations, awards and initiatives set up in an attempt to equal
out the discrepancy between the numbers of women and men working as
commercial photographers - currently only 18% of photographers at the
AOP are women!
f22 will exist to provide a dedicated network for open discussion,
share knowledge and most importantly lobby towards changing the
gender inequality within our industry. #thefstartshere!
If you would like to join the AOP there is a new Accesss membership
@ £25 for the first year.
Or simply follow our progress on Instagram @f22aop

of women’s suffrage in the UK and has seen significant steps taken to
highlight women’s rights – from the #metoo and Times Up movements to
increased awareness of the gender gap and global protests fighting for
Through the Hundred Heroines initiative, The RPS is adding its voice
to the global discussion."
Thank you to whoever nominated me, really very much appreciated.
And congratulations to all the heroines I sit alongside with on the list.
It's a real honour.
