Elianne van Turennout Profile picture Discover the fascinating history of women and education, in which studying was long forbidden territory for women. Women who pursued knowledge were often seen as threats and sometimes even accused of witchcraft, as evidenced by ancient herbal knowledge. In stories like that of Eve in the Bible, the woman who ate from the tree of knowledge is portrayed as the one who brought sin into the world simply because she pursued knowledge.

This history reminds us of the deep-rooted prejudice and discrimination that women have faced in the past and sometimes still face when pursuing education and knowledge. It is essential to recognise how women's rights were suppressed when knowledge was forbidden to them. This awareness is crucial to 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. This history offers us valuable lessons on the struggle for gender equality and underscores the importance of access to education for all.

Together, let us strive for a world where knowledge and education are universal rights, free from discrimination and prejudice, and where every woman has the opportunity to reach her full potential.

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.
