Celebrating Women in Photography Today – Together

Hundred Heroines (HH) is the only UK charity dedicated to advancing public awareness of women in photography. Leading women photographers (the ‘Heroines’) challenge how we see the world, push artistic and social boundaries and highlight issues of inequality. We provide an accessible, varied programme of creative, social and educational activities as well as opportunities, which are particularly empowering for young women.

Located in Gloucester, we have a museum with a growing collection, contemporary gallery, dedicated installation pods and a collaborative hub, as well as a large public creative canvas.

Our vision is the universal recognition of women in photography – past, present & future. Our mission is to connect people with the visual arts and to share opportunities for diverse communities to celebrate women in photography.
