‘The Female Gaze’
Naila Ruechel

Witness female identity portrayed in all its sass-filled glory at 'The Female Gaze', a photography exhibition where women are hard at work behind and in front of the lens. See a selection of 70 photographs of women (and two gender-bending men) from archival images of factory workers during WWI to vintage celebrity snaps, this is girl power at its best.

Creative, inter-sectional and artistic this exhibition has a great take on the 'Female Gaze'.I loved the depictions of women from different races and with different body shapes as I think it put across a really valuable and confidence building message that all bodies are beautiful. Furthermore, when I think of voyeurism my mind instantly jumps to Laura Mulvey's 'Male Gaze' and I love that this subverts that with number 1) a female gaze and number 2) a mixture of us looking at the women and them looking at us. I'd probably go again if I was passing through Oxford Street as I think this is a really body positive and forward thinking exhibition.
