As 21 female photographers, we stand against violence, sexism, conservatism and inequality. We created the initiative “WeChangeThePicture” to show our support towards all women.

With this action we are trying to stand next to all women who have been victims of verbal, physical and sexual violence within their family or work environment. This is the right time to speak out about gender-based violence, abuse of power and sexism. To endorse the re-evaluation of current legislative framework on gender equality and to advocate the need of an open discussion, aiming to point out abusive behaviors that tend to be accepted as status quo.

As 21 female photographers, each one of us will grant one piece of photography art; each artwork will have 21 numbered and signed copies available in order to help the Centre for Research on Women’s Issues (CRWI) “Diotima”, which provides legal and mental support to women who are brave enough to speak out.
