I am glad this exhibition is once again open to public. It contains some incredible stories - women going through incredible stuff to survive, to support their families. One photograph told the story of a Rohingya woman who gave birth to twins alone in the jungle as she escaped genocide in Burma! 

The exhibition was one of the most inspirational and eye opening photography exhibitions I have ever been a part of. The photographs chosen in conjunction with the beautiful energy and atmosphere provided by Angelo and the inspiring team at Youmanity were absolutely perfect and I highly recommend anyone to go and view the pictures of these beautiful and courageous women. Also if you are interested in creating some beautiful change in this world that so badly need then Youmanity are a fantastically aligned NGO that really care about this world and all the amazing humans in it.

Touching and remarkable exhibition. Finally truly heroines receive the deserved recognition, otherwise denied or ignored in their everyday life.  Claudia

I took my 10 and 8 year old boys to this exhibition.  It was fantastic to see the beautiful photos and images on display. I wanted the boys to have an appreciation for some of the incredible things that women do in their daily lives. Well done for showcasing this Youmanity.

my favorite photographs portrayed Colombian mothers seeking justice for the forced disappearance of their sons. Looking forward to 18th Dec

Once again Youmanity has created a masterpiece of inclusivity, demonstrating how lucky most of us are in the developed world whereas many nations (and sometimes closer to home) can be treated with such disrespect with impunity. Using art to showcase a message is a tried and tested method to bring to light injustice, and this exhibition does that in a thoughtful and thought provoking way. Well done Youmanity. Craig Hartwell

I've been deeply touched by the photographs I've seen at this exhibition in October. It truly makes you think about the role of women all over the world, and why we should call them "heroines", with no exaggeration. 

The contestants captured meaningful moments of their everyday life, and each and every photograph tells a powerful story that touches your mind, your heart and your soul like few other things would do. The emotions were so vivid that I still remember every photograph I've seen. Highly recommended.
