“As a proud feminist I am delighted to be an Ambassador for 100 Heroines on the centenary of women’s right to vote. Championing women in photography is essential to the industry. Levelling the playing field is long overdue in order to truly represent the world we live in. If I can play a small part in this, I do so willingly and with urgency. I see no deficit of female talent, those who say otherwise are not looking hard enough.”
