Offer: Call For Contributions/Submissions: The Mediterranean Women's Fund: Photo Competition 2011: Women, Their Revolutions
On the bank of the Mediterranean whistles a wind of freedom.Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Lebanon, Syria. The desire to live, the will to speak out, the ability to choose one's own destiny but can it go far enough to ask for equality between genders? Women have shown that they are unavoidable actresses in democratic revolutions in animating social networks, organizing committees, in the street, in graffitis, in artistic creations, in multiple ways of struggle side by side with men. But what place do these women occupy the day after those revolutions end? Deadline for submissions: October 30, 2011.
On the other bank of the Mediterranean, in the more democratic societies, women never stop fighting for the rights they already acquired (abortion, contraception...) or to achieve total rights equality between men and women (at work, decision making institutions) and treatment (respect of women and their freedom).
From one bank of the Mediterranean to the other, what type of democratic societies women want to establish? What does the word revolution means for them?
The 2011 Photo Competition of the Mediterranean Women's Fund takes place in this context. The objective of the competition is to witness through photography several and diverse forms of expression and varieties used by women to affirm their rights, refuse injustice they suffer and create new horizons and prospects. Through the competition, the Mediterranean Women's Fund wants to be committed to those who build societies based on genuine equality between men and women.
This competition is only for amateurs women or men who reside in mediterranean countries.
It is open from the 5th of July to the 30th of October 2011 at midnight.
