The inspiring new exhibit In Their Hands: Women Taking Ownership of Peace, profiles 14 women from the Middle East, South America and Africa who have mediated with armed groups, participated in peace talks, advanced political solutions and advocated for women’s rights, alongside the women photographers who captured their stories.
Women play a central role in their communities, and ensuring their full, equal and meaningful participation in peace and political processes is vital. The exhibition is organized by the UN Department of Peace Operations, the UN Department of Political and Peace-building Affairs and UN Women, in partnership with New York City’s iconic Photoville festival. It will remain open to the public until December 1st. More
