The Euro-Mediterranean Women’s Foundation (FFEM)’s photo exhibition "Dones trencant barreres. Transformant les ciutats mediterrànies" ("Women breaking barriers. Transforming Mediterranean cities") is currently hosted by Torre Jussana – Associations Service Center in Barcelona, Spain.
The exhibition which is organized by the European Institute of the Mediterranean (IEMed) could be visited between the 7th of January to the 8th of February 2019. It is also worth mentioning that this mobile exhibition is the fruit 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 ("Powerful women: Breaking stereotypes in the Euro-Mediterranean region"). Each photo had to be accompanied by a text explaining the story and context of the take. The 10 selected photographs highlight brave and independent women who participate in the transformation of cities in the Mediterranean. The photos come from Belgium, Egypt, Israel, Morocco, Palestine, Algeria and Turkey.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
