This is a project highlighting the women working in male dominated industries. Women have managed to reach the top of many of these professions. Business, medicine, law, politics, etc. have all modernised - to a certain extent - and benefitted from the increasing inclusion of women.

However, there are still many vocations where women make up less than 10% of the workforce, for example, firefighting, aviation, construction, science, engineering, mechanics and technology to name a few.

This series celebrates these women, explores their experiences of being in the minority and challenges our preconceptions of gender and ability.
