The photo exhibition was displayed from 10 to 28 March 2022 at the Bernard Du Bois Social Centre, in 16 rue Bernard du Bois, Marseille 1st.
"Women in Action: Ending Stereotypes in the Mediterranean" is an itinerant exhibition, the result of the photography competition "Exceptional Women: Ending Stereotypes in the Euro-Mediterranean Region", launched by the EMWF in November 2017, on the occasion of the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.
