where the girls are

video on LIFE’s female photographers.

Toronto. We have fought for many kinds of equality over the years. One kind is gender equality. Before retiring almost 30 years ago, I watched Bell struggle to improve gender equality. Recently, our federal government bravely formed a senior group of MPs, half of whom were women. Things didn’t go quite as planned… ¬†And record companies like Ace made compilations of female groups.

In this recent nod to gender equality, the New York Historical Society, mounted an exhibition of some of Life magazine’s better known women photographers called “Women Behind the Lens” and curated by Marilyn Satin Kushner.

The BBC  featured a short video on the subject. Thanks to George Dunbar for bringing this video to my attention.
