After Paris, Lisbon, and Barcelona, the Euro-Mediterranean Women’s Foundation (FFEM)’s photo exhibition "Dones trencant barreres. Transformant les ciutats mediterrànies" ("Women breaking barriers. Transforming Mediterranean cities") will move to Torredembarra (Tarragona Province, Spain).
Between November 19th and December 30th 3018, the exhibition will be hosted by the Mestra Maria Antònia Library in Torredembarra as part of a series of activities celebrating the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women (25 November).
On December 10th 2018, the exhibition will be completed by a discussion entitled “Feminismes a la Mediterrània. Avenços i reptes d’una lluita conjunta” (“Feminsisms in the Mediterranean. Advances and Challenges of a common fight) organized by the Gender Programme at the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed). The discussion is meant to shed light on gender equality on both sides of the Mediterranean with special focus on the inspiring fight of the southern Mediterranean women, Moroccan in particular, to end discrimination, sexism and gender-based violence.
