Africa in feminine: struggles and victories of women in Gambia
"Africa in Feminine: Struggles and Victories of Women in Gambia” shows the difficulties women face in this Sub-Saharan African country in areas such as education, labor market insertion, access to economic resources or sexual and reproductive rights.
At the same time, the project reflects how women face these problems and overcome them through three projects developed by organizations that receive support from the Catalan cooperation (Mbolo Association, Wassu Gambia Kafo and WASDA).
The project is carried out with the Associació Solidança and has the support of Fons Català de Cooperació pel Desenvolupament. Through this grant, a first part has been made possible allowing RUIDO Photo to make the trip to Gambia and build an exhibition in collaboration with the City Council of Santa Coloma de Gramenet. The exhibition can be visited from March 11 to April 11, 2019 at the Centre Cívic Riu. Later, it will be available for exhibitions in other municipalities.
In addition, a chronicle has been published in La Vanguardia about the history of overcoming by Jankey Jassey, one of the protagonists.
