— Celebrating International Women’s Day

The English Group has been involved with a number of projects focused towards issues of gender imbalance and gender inequality over the last few years. As well as working with Annie Lennox’s SING Campaign and ‘The Circle’ project (on behalf of Oxfam), and the GREAT Initiative with Mariella Frostrup, we notably joined up with Bryan Adams and BlackBerry for Modern Muses , a celebration of inspiring women of the modern age, presented as a monograph of Bryan’s portraits of the women, as well as an exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery.

Our Modern Muses included:


Amma Asante
Lady Bamford
Prof. Dame Carol Black
Darcey Bussell CBE
Sadie Coles
Marie Colvin
Dame Judi Dench
Anne-Marie Duff
Charmaine Eggberry
Dr. Scilla Elworthy
Zaha Hadid
Baroness Hogg
Irene Khan
Kanya King MBE
Annie Lennox
Virginia McKenna OBE
Annie Morris
Erin O’Connor
Tilda Swinton
Hon. Hilary Weston CM OOnt

…all of these women are icons in their own field, whether that be the Arts, in business or world issues, and each of them can be considered amongst the greatest role models for women of all time.
