Some notes on the speakers:
Anita Corbin first sprang to prominence in the early Eighties with her series of informal portraits of young women in subcultures, Visible Girls. She went on to become a highly regarded reportage and portrait photographer with The Sunday Times, The Observer, and Elle magazine, and has been collected by museums such as the National Portrait Gallery. A graduate of the Royal College of Art, Corbin’s focus has always been on the image of women.
Her 100 First Women exhibition ranges across sport, media, the military, faith, science, business and the arts. From 18 to 102 years of age, from beatboxing to bomb detection, computing to cricket, Corbin has created an impressive record of female potential and achievement, championing role models who deserve to be recognised as the First Woman in her respective field.
Elspeth Beard is a motorcyclist and award-winning architect. In 1982, at the age of just twenty-three, she set off on a 35,000 mile solo adventure and became the first British woman to motorcycle around the world. She will be talking about her a two and a half year journey reflecting on the challenges faced as a solo woman on the road and how the journey shaped the rest of her life.
