    DescriptionThis anthology is dedicated to pictures of women taken by women. It begins with photographs by the two great female photographers of the 19th century, Clementina Lady Hawarden and Julia Margaret Cameron, and covers a period of over 100 years to the present day. Some 160 images by 90 photographers present us with the entire spectrum of female self-definition both behind and in front of the camera. As such, the four major themes of social reality, the family, the female body and virtual reality come to the fore with their multifarious pictures from the worlds of art, literature, fashion, dance and show business. There are self-portraits as well as female photographers' portraits of female photographers, daughters, mothers and, of course, several important female figures including Virginia Woolf, Greta Garbo, Martha Graham, Simone de Beauvoir, Maria Callas, Madonna, Hillary Clinton, and even Her Majesty the Queen.
