Women Create Change
Chapter III

Taking inspiration from the work of WWI photographers, such as Olive Edis, Horace Nicholls and Christina Broom who documented the contribution of women to the war effort and their changing social roles, Women Create Change looks at modern social changemakers 100 years later to reflect the links between these pioneering women of the war and individuals who contribute to continuing developments in the role of women today.

The series captures moments with 21st century pioneering women with a connection to Oxfordshire in all walks of life, including Bishop Libby Lane, soprano Emma Kirkby, neuroscientist Susan Greenfield, MINIPlant apprentice Philippa Napier, racehorse trainer Henrietta Knight and Martha Lane Fox, founder of lastmniute.com. With divergent interests and backgrounds, these women are united by their passion and drive, and push the boundaries of our expectation in their respective fields.
