In 2017, a photo contest organized by the Euro-Mediterranean Women’s Foundation entitled "Powerful women: Breaking stereotypes in the Euro-Mediterranean region" took place and this special photo exhibition was created from the 10 best rated photos. It shares inspiring stories of hope and personal growth from women from Algeria, Belgium, Egypt, Israel, Morocco, Palestine and Turkey who are breaking with gender stereotypes in their communities. It tells of women who have the courage to bring change into their environment.
The next places where “Dones trencant barreres” can be visited in the coming months are in Sant Boi de Llobregat, Santa Perpetua de Mogoda and Mataró!
