ActionAid presents:
Women by Women

A photography exhibition

Women by Women, women's photography campaign by ActionAid UK

A photography exhibition celebrating women in front of and behind the lens

To celebrate International Women’s Day, ActionAid is presenting Women by Women, a free photography exhibition at gallery@oxo on London’s South Bank, running from March 5-8 2020.

ActionAid has partnered exclusively with women photographers in the countries we work in to bring a different perspective to the way women and girls living in poverty are represented – and to shine a spotlight on their incredible talent, which is so often overlooked.

The campaign is a meeting of two women – a photographer and a subject – to share empowering stories, shatter stereotypes and highlight the next generation of female leaders.

The photographs celebrate women who are breaking down barriers, from a street artist in Afghanistan to the founder of a women-only coffee collective in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Women by Women gives us photographers the opportunity to feel part of our own stories and tell the stories of our own people.” - Esther Mbabazi
