From 10 to 11 October, the Champalimaud Foundation’s Centre for the Unknown (Lisbon, Portugal) will host a photo exhibition titled "Powerful women: Breaking stereotypes in the Euro-Mediterranean region". The event is part of the 2018 edition of the Women4Mediterranean Conferences organized by the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM). This year’s conference is centred on the topic "Women build inclusive societies".
The photo exhibition is the result of the photo contest launched by the FFEM on November 25, 2017, on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Each photo had to be accompanied by a text explaining the history and context of the take. The 10 selected photographs highlight brave and independent women who fight to eliminate gender stereotypes and promote equality values in their environment.
The Women4Mediterranean Conference is expected to gather more than 300 high level stakeholders from all sectors involved in gender equality and women’s empowerment in the Euro-Mediterranean region. This includes country representatives, ministers, local authorities and institutions, parliamentarians, international organizations, civil society platforms, academics, private sector actors, project promoters, personalities with an outstanding commitment towards gender equality, media and youth.
