Elianne van Turennout Profile picture Studying was forbidden territory for women for a long time. Often, women who mastered knowledge were considered a threat. Even centuries-old herbal knowledge of women was sometimes accused of witchcraft. In stories like that of Eve in the Bible, the woman who ate from the tree of knowledge is seen as the one who brought sin into the world, simply because she strove for knowledge.

It is essential to remember how women's rights were suppressed in the past, when knowledge was forbidden to them. This history reminds us of the deep-rooted prejudice and discrimination women faced, and in some cases still face, in the pursuit of education and knowledge.

It is important to be aware of the ongoing struggle for gender equality and women's right to education. By understanding and acknowledging the past, we can work towards a future where all people, regardless of gender, have equal opportunities to learn, grow and contribute to society.

It all started with a4 paper and HB pencils. As a child I was often impressed by how beautiful the world around me was. The urge to capture this beautiful world, and to show the people around me what I saw, was actually there from the beginning. If I remember correctly, I was about eleven years old when I first met the camera. Of course it was a simple compact camera with a ridiculous quality, but I enjoyed it.

I sometimes said I wanted to be a photographer, but of course you have one of the two parents who says, "Dream on." Strangely enough, I followed the sarcastic remark as advice, and still went to study photography.
