Women - A Century of Change

Women have been central to storytelling at National Geographic throughout our more than 130 year history. Our extensive photo archives are filled with images of a wide range of women across the world. Frame by frame, these images have come to form a global chronicle of the lives of women. The archives offer captivating glimpses of women throuh time--how they've been perceived, how they've been treated, how much power they've had (or didn't have), how they've faced challenges, and how they've filled their days--from the turn of the 20th Century to the present.
