Today, on International Women’s Day, we’re taking time to celebrate the extraordinary talent and fortitude of our female photographers.

These women consistently show their strength in fighting to be taken seriously in a male-dominated industry, entering dangerous and unpredictable situations, and tackling stereotypes about where women should go and the topics they should cover.

In an attempt to reflect on the progress made, to call for change and to celebrate acts of courage and determination by ordinary women who have played an extraordinary role in the history of their countries, communities and in their field, here are some images from our female photographers featuring powerful female subjects.

Delve into the work of these female photographers and their male counterparts through their extensive AtEdge portfolio.
