Women in resistance: a photo exhibition

Alliance Française de Durban and the Durban Botanic Gardens, in collaboration with the French Institute of South Africa, will present an international exhibition – “Women in Resistance (Femmes en résistance)” by French photographer, Pierre-Yves Ginet, as well as an interactive local exhibition “Women in Resistance, Durban & KwaZulu-Natal” on Facebook.

“Women in Resistance” will run from June 20 to July 10 in the Sunken at Durban Botanic Gardens.

Breathtaking portraits by Ginet will feature the struggle, contribution and sacrifice of women for survival, dignity, democracy, equality and justice all over the world. From Congolese women fighting sexual violence to Tibetan nuns fighting for education in Asia to Argentinian women opposing dictators, you will be treated to a visual display of ordinary women leading diverse causes around the world.

Ginet aims to move away from the stereotypical representation of women as victimised, instead giving priority to the struggles led by many women. Women in Resistance is a stark reminder that societies are mixed and that history is equally as feminine as it is masculine.

The exhibition opens on June 20 at 10.3am, with an array of outstanding women of diverse backgrounds who have made a difference in South Africa sharing their experiences.

All women are invited to contribute to the greater goal of empowering women through this initiative.

Says Alliance Française de Durban: “Take a selfie, shoot a short video, write a poem, send us your stories, and more on our Facebook event page! We want to showcase women’s stories that surpass every generation, culture, religion, language and community”.

The online Show Us Your Selfie initiative will be brought to the exhibition’s opening ceremony.

To round off the opening ceremony, a guided tour of the Orchid House organised by female orchid specialists Hedralien Pieters and Janet Gates, will be taken through the striking Orchid House to discover the strength and beauty of this fragile flower that is both the symbol of feminine grace and eternal perfection.

For more information about this event, visit the Facebook event page or call Vuyolwethu Ndlela, Special Projects Coordinator at Alliance Française de Durban, on 031 312 9852 or 078 970 2636.
