From the first Black woman to be elected to Gloucester City Council, to the Church of England's first female diocesan bishop, the Museum of Gloucester's new exhibition celebrates incredible local women.

Celebrating the incredible talents of local women, The Museum of Gloucester's latest exhibition, 100x100: 100 Gloucester women photographed by 100 women photographers, takes up residence in its community gallery this December 2022. 

From Tuesday 20 December 2022, visitors can admire portraits of a diverse selection of local women, including rugby referee Debbie Innes-Turnill; fashion designer and businesswoman Emma Willis; the Church of England’s first female diocesan bishop, The Right Reverend Rachel Treweek; poet and filmmaker Thembe Mvula; and the first Black woman to be elected to Gloucester City Council and the first Black sheriff and deputy mayor of Gloucester City, Carol Francis - all taken by female photographers. 

The project, in association with charity Hundred Heroines, was launched on International Women's Day 2022 to encourage more women to take up photography and celebrate the 'indomitable, pioneering spirit' of Gloucester's women. 

In each of the portraits, each woman holds up a message to the camera, with subjects sharing motivational quotes, words of advice and encouragement. 

100x100 is at the Museum of Gloucester until International Women's Day on Wednesday 8 March 2023. 

Entry to the exhibition is free, but donations are gratefully received.
