Women are active in all segments of Ethiopian society and play a critical role in contributing to Ethiopia's development. Doctors, teachers, farmers, workers, politicians, mothers, business women, students - women and girls contribute every day in many visible and invisible ways. Many of these contributions go unrecognised.

The European Union Delegation to Ethiopia, in partnership with Ethiopia's first feminist movement called Setaweet ('of women'), launched an Ethiopia-wide photo competition at the occasion of the International Women's Day celebrated worldwide on March 8, asking for pictures that show women's roles in their diversity and beauty and to celebrate the everyday contributions of Ethiopian women.

Nearly a hundred pictures were submitted in the two categories 'open' and 'professional'. The exhibition displays a selection of the best photos that recognise and appreciate not only the many visible contributions women make to society and economic growth in Ethiopia but also those that are taken for granted.

The process was complemented by a gender and photo workshop with women from selected European Union projects under the EU Civil Society Fund II for Ethiopia. The workshop served as a venue to come together, share different experiences and to discuss women's representation in pictures of development projects. The women who participated in the workshop have equally submitted their pictures displayed at the exhibition.

#MyBodyMyPower photo exhibition commissioned by FORWARD and photographed by Marianne Olaleye depicts women owning their bodies as spaces of power, having agency and positively affirming their autonomy. By defying stereotypes of young Black women, #MyBodyMyPower stresses the effect of unequal social norms and share experiences that are at the intersection of history, race, feminism, religion and sexuality. #MyBodyMyPower gives voice to often marginalised young women, empowering them to advocate for their rights and physical and psychological integrity.

UNESCO presents “On Air with Rural Women", an exhibition built around radio broadcasts gathered from local stations in 10 countries of Sub-Saharan Africa. The inclusion of women's voices and gender issues in the media has the power to act as a force for women's empowerment, breaking down this circle of inequality and dependence.Through audio, video and creative installations, the exhibition showcases how the inclusion of women's voices in radio can contribute to progress on gender issues in some of the most isolated African communities.

Listen to the testimonies of Catherine, a radio manager from a station dedicated to women, Theresia, a midwife who founded her own radio to help the community, and Busisiwe, a young radio host from an historical South African community radio station – all through authentic radio programs from local stations. The exhibition was inaugurated at UNESCO Paris on International Women’s Day 2018, and will be presented next at the European Development Days in Brussels on 5 and 6 June 2018.

All materials featured in the exhibition have been collected through UNESCO’s "Empowering Local Radio with ICTs" project, supported by Sweden, which aims to build the capacity of local radio to provide marginalized populations, particularly in remote and poor areas, with reliable and quality access to information on topics that affect their lives.

We warn our communities ahead of severe storms and heat waves. And we also give practical recommendations, for example which seeds to plant and which pesticides to use.” These words are not those of an aid organization or any international expert.

This is Vietnamese farmer Quang Thi Kien talking – one of twelve climate heroines from all over the world selected for this very special exhibition. CARE International supports people like Quang Thi Kien around the world in their daily struggle against the consequences of climate change and for the preservation of their homes. People are fighting – from Fiji and the Philippines to the West Bank. And those on the forefront are often women: They are the ones who work on the fields, socialize and share their knowledge with their families and communities. When it comes to climate protection, women are the beacon of hope. This is why women are our climate heroines. With this photo exhibition, we want to acknowledge their commitment. We want to celebrate these powerful women and their hard work to safeguard their homes.

In cooperation with the renowned laif agency, our climate heroines were portrayed at worldwide locations where communities adapt to climate change – whether it is with support from CARE or in other contexts. The projects range from disaster protection, agriculture and water supply to political lobbying and demonstrations for climate protection.

Since 2015, UN Women together with the European Commission, the Belgian Development Cooperation, and UNRIC launched several comic and cartoon competitions “Gender Equality: Picture it!” in the EU, Nigeria, Vietnam, Indonesia and Ukraine.

Young artists and art students aged 18 to 28 were invited to become global champions for women and girls by illustrating their understanding of gender equality through comic and cartoons.
