Exeter Show – Catch The Last Two Weeks

Image by George Hunt

After two lockdowns and a flood, the First Women 100 Portraits exhibition enters its last two weeks on show in the South West.

Closing on Sunday, 20th June, head over to Exeter’s RAMM to see all 100 Firsts in their triple-hung glory.
As ever we, recommend checking out up-to-minute information on RAMM’s website before your visit. No booking necessary.

Meet the Woman behind the Lens

On Sunday, 6th June and Sunday 20th June, Anita Corbin will be in the gallery between 10am and 12 noon. Pop along and say hello, signing books and ready to chat to you about the stories behind the images.
First Woman Jill Pay will also be there on Sunday 20th June at 1pm, so come and meet a First in the flesh.


We are so hugely grateful to the crew at RAMM and all the visitors that masked-up, sanitised and came to visit the show at this extraordinary time. And of course, you can always see the full show in glorious technicolour at their virtual home online HERE.

Don’t forget our fantastic FirstWomen:LIVE! free Zoomcasts.

Join the live Q&A sessions from the comfort of your sofa and experience pioneers in your living room! Find out more about our next event in the Project News section of 1stwomenuk.co.uk.
