100 Leading Ladies


Photographer Nancy Honey’s new exhibition of 100 portraits of senior women runs until 26 October at Somerset House. The portraits are as diverse as the subjects, who come from different backgrounds, and rose to prominence in various fields of expertise. They’re united here because, often largely unheralded, they have made enormous positive contributions to society, and act as an inspiration to women and girls.

There’s also an accompanying book, which features fascinating interviews with each leading lady.
