Event description

Description

The City of Greater Geelong's Women in Community Life committee are pleased to present to you a gender equity conversation, complimented by series of portraits of women across the Geelong region along with their thoughts on the Strength of A Woman.

Four outstanding local women will share their journeys and perspective of gender equity and gender equality.

At the 2017 International Women’s Day event, hosted by the City’s Women in Community Life Advisory Committee, attendees were invited to be part of a photographic project titled Strength of a Woman.

It provided local women the opportunity to share what they saw as being the strength of a woman.

36 women in total participated in the project, which involved having a photo taken and answering 3 questions on the topic. The questions were as follows:

  • What do you think makes a woman strong?

  • When have you felt strong as a woman?

  • Why do we need strong women?

A quote was captured from each woman’s answers and, along with the photograph, has been transformed into a series of portraits that highlight, capture and promote the strength of a woman as seen through the eyes of women across Geelong!

The photos will be exhibited during the Barwon Month of Action to Stop Men’s Violence Against Women and Children at an event that explores gender equity through a panel of speakers on their personal journeys and a celebration of women’s strength in our own community.

This is a FREE event. Numbers are limited. Light refreshments will be provided.
