Empowerment, Through a lens! Photographers reflect on empowerment!
On International Women's day in 2012 the Man Up campaign presented the "Through our Lens" exhibition. Man Up is a global campaign to activate youth to stop violence against women and girls. Several photographers displayed their work at "Through our Lens" exhibition ; projects and images with emphasis on broad concepts of empowerment. The goal was not to present women as victims, there were no photos of blood, weapons, conflict and death but only photos that present women as powerful and confident individuals. The exhibit also captured themes from community to fatherhood, highlighting how the strength that comes from relationships empowers people.
