"It’s a Woman’s World" - UNHCR

Today, more than 65 million people are uprooted by war, violence and persecution. Women and girls make up half of this number. On top of losing everything, they are confronted with gender discrimination and gender-based violence. Despite the obstacles and often against all odds, displaced women and girls are doing their utmost to build their lives and the lives of their loved ones, and to live with dignity.

The photo exhibition is co-organised by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the European Commission’s Directorate General for European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operations.

At the exhibition, you will have the chance to receive a special eco-friendly bag, designed and crafted by Teenah, a social manufacturing company that employs Syrian refugee women and Jordanian women in the north of Jordan. This is also part of UNHCR’s new Made 51 Initiative, which aims at bringing beautiful refugee-made products that merge contemporary design with traditional skills to the global market.
