“Mothers of the Americas: individual journeys” is a series of iconic portraits of women coming from a wide range of American countries and backgrounds. Through these por- traits, we want to pay tribute to women who also happen to be mothers. The objective is to give a special focus to women whose motherhood proved a source of energy and commitment. This is about all these mothers who have achieved not merely a dream but also a personal, educational and/or professional goal. A tribute to the strength of women and their key role in a family, a community, a country, an ever-changing world… This exhibition will aim at displaying – with visions and emotions, rather than figures or arguments – a few individual journeys that reflect the aspirations and challenges of so many women from all generations.
The exhibition was created with the support of the French Permanent Representation to the OAS, embracing the French Government’s agenda, including as G7 Presidency, regarding gender equality and women’s rights.
