Description of the workshop:
What does it mean to be a woman in the current society? Is it the same everywhere in the world? Do we all face the same challenges? And do we have the same aspirations? Are there boundaries to our gender identity?
Raquel is a solo female traveler and photographer, capturing the untold stories and the beauty of being a woman. She searches for answers for these questions in the testimonies of women she has come across on her journey, conveying them in Voices of Women – her photographic tribute to women. Through her art, photography, she will share with us her trip around Asia, telling us how the experience helped her rediscover herself as a woman and made her commit to fighting for gender equality.
But…who is Raquel? She is the founder of Voices of Women – a platform that aims to discuss topics like feminism, gender discrimination and gender identity among others, in order to give more insight into these debates. You can read more about her here. While showing her photographic work she will share those experiences and thoughts that led her to this project, aiming to raise awareness among the audience about the gender inequality and women rights violation happening around the world.
With this workshop you will also see a comparison between western countries and the rest of the world regarding these issues. At the end of the talk there will be room for a discussion, Q&A and debate about these topics, where you will be able to share your opinion.
And the most important… you will support a nice cause 🙂 !!
