IWD 2019 is about #balanceforbetter. What does this mean to you as a female photographer?
It is disappointing that even in a creative industry such as photography there can still be a disparity between the genders in the representation of women in this field, and the rates of renumeration.
What does this mean to you as a human?
As a human operating in a feminine body I wish to see even the contributions of women regarded in the same manner as those of their male counterparts.
