Photography is an integral tool that gives us a glimpse into a world of experiences that can be so different from our own. It allows us to connect with people and places we may never have come across otherwise.
A powerful image demands our full attention, but the perspective of the person who created it can tell an even richer story.
To celebrate Women's History Month this March, we've collected 35 powerful images taken by photographers who are women. The images include Dorothea Lange's iconic Great Depression photos and the war photography of photojournalist Anja Niedringhaus, who lost her life covering Afghanistan in 2014. These women and their work capture the human condition at its most honest.
Images can become as much a part of history as the moment they capture. And in that sense, women have been capturing history as long as they have been making it.
While it's impossible to include every photographer we love on this list, take a look at 35 extremely talented women telling history through their lenses.
Images are listed from most recent to oldest.
