The Portraits constitute the drive towards redressing the Gender Balance initiated by the inaugural ” Women on Walls”,  the installation of a series of posthumous painted portraits of Women in 2018.

Each Woman photographed holds a particular chosen object which defines/ indicates their individual area of Expertise. The portraits were made in the Historic Board Room of RCSI, 123 St Stephen’s Green, under the watchful eyes of the Women in the posthumous Painted Portraits.
Emboldening the spirit of the mantra, “You Can’t Be What You Can’t See “.
