WASHINGTON, DC.- The National Portrait Gallery presents Women of Our Time: Twentieth Century Photographs, on view through February 1, 2009. In the exhibition "Women of Our Time: Twentieth Century Photographs," the National Portrait Gallery celebrates women who have challenged and changed America. Drawn exclusively from the Portrait Gallery's collection, these revealing portraits show women who have reached the summit of achievement in politics, business, the arts, sports, performance, music and science. The exhibition includes photographs of Margaret Wise Brown, Amelia Earhart, Althea Gibson, Billie Holiday, Helen Keller, Marilyn Monroe, Georgia O'Keeffe, Gertrude Stein, Gloria Steinem and Wendy Wasserstein. Featuring distinguished 20th century photographers the exhibition includes works by Philippe Halsman, Lotte Jacobi, Lisette Model, Irving Penn and Edward Steichen, among others. "Women of Our Time" is as much about the art of photographic portraiture as it is a celebration of its subjects. This exhibition is sponsored by The Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Foundation.

Two companion publications are available, a larger, coffee table book (Merrell, 2002) and a condensed book (Merrell, 2007) by exhibition curator Frederick Voss, former historian at the National Portrait Gallery.
