About The Event
'Climate change is a man made problem that will be solved by feminism ......this will include men because feminism is about equality ' Mary Robinson
This January, the Islington Climate Centre hosts an exhibition of photography of women in activism 2020-2022 by photojournalist Denise Baker.
In 1903, tired of gaining no ground, Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughters Sylvia and Christabel set up a more radical Women's Social and Political Union that undertook direct action such as window smashing and arson. The groups motto was " Deeds, Not Words"
Today, women are still taking the helm in a bid to enact change. As a life long campaigner and activist, Denise has a long history of attending protests and marches. As a photojournalist, she documents activism and communities, capturing the way individuals stand together and work together, highlighting the whole picture and effecting change. "Combining an activist’s passion and photojournalists' neutrality is complex," says Denise. "In the words of Ukrainian documentary photographer Maxim Dondyuk 'The camera is my weapon and my mouthpiece'."
