In 1920, the former Czechoslovakia granted women the right to vote. Throughout 2020, we’ll be celebrating this centenary by highlighting and featuring women in photography from the Czech Republic and Slovakia – both living heroines and those no longer with us. If you’d like to nominate a Czech or Slovakian heroine, then email us at email@example.com or tag us in a tweet or on Instagram #hundredheroines.
Here are some names to get the ball rolling:

Jitka Hanzlová – examines notions of belonging and identity.
Markéta Luskačová – documentary photographer and former Magnum nominee.
