I’m with her: 13 photographers present their most intimate odes to womanhood

What would happen in a world without women? This is the question driving the women’s strike across the world this International Women’s Day. The strike follows what was reportedly the biggest and most peaceful protest in US history, January’s Women’s March, which took place in major cities worldwide to protest Donald Trump’s inauguration. In the New East, Russian lawmakers have recently decriminalised domestic violence and Polish conservative politician Janusz Korwin-Mikke has described women as “smaller, weaker, less clever”. So this 8 March there’s no better time to stand up for women everywhere. To mark the occasion, we asked 13 female photographers and contributors to The Calvert Journal to send us a photo on the theme of womanhood. Friends, mothers, activists, sporting talents: these photos explore just a small fraction of female experience in the New East. Click on the photos for more info.
