CIRFF2018: Come visit our photo exhibition on gender stereotypes!

Under the title "Women in action: Breaking Gender Stereotypes in the Mediterranean", the exhibition shows women who are generally invisible and not well-known even though they dare to break the rules imposed by patriarchal societies. This exhibition is the result of the photo competition launched by the FFEM on November 25, 2017, on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, to honor women who break gender stereotypes in the southern Mediterranean countries and the European Union.

The reward for the 10 finalists was that their photos and stories be exhibited at the International Congress on Feminist Research in the "Francophonie" (CIRFF2018), to be held in Nanterre (France), from August 27th to August 31st. 

These portraits address themes such as access to education, institutional violence or intersections between discrimination related to gender, skin color and disability. It also tackles prostitution, and so-called "male" professions among others. Their common point is to highlight inspiring women who promote non-discriminatory and egalitarian values in their surroundings. Their individual stories are universal in scope and are a reflection of our societies. Come along and see for yourself!*

* To attend as an audience and to benefit from all other congress related events, you have to register on the CIRFF webpage on the link below. Also, given that the congress promotes the French language (“Francophonie”), we inform you that all events will be held in French without any translation.
