[Brussels, 08 March 2012] On the International Women’s Day, the EWL celebrated the opening reception of its photo exhibition ’My World: Visions of Feminism in the 21st Century’ in the Hôtel communal d’Etterbeek in Brussels. The exhibition brings together the best works of young female photographers from across Europe who participated in the EWL photo competition ’Feminism in the 21st Century, which was launched two years ago.
The 20 artists whose photograps are exhibited, study the meaning of feminism today and what is means to be a young woman living in Europe. The exhibition is is accessible to public until 30 March during the office hours.
On the opening reception, the EWL reminded that gender inequalities still persist in Europe and invited the audience to closely study the pictures and see through them the multiple faces of contemporary feminism and the inequalities that young women in Europe still face.
The exhibition is organised by the services of Francophone Culture, of European Affairs and of Equality between Women and Men of Etterbeek, together with the EWL.
