Last year, I wrote a post about the Aboriginal Australian stories I’d had around me when I was growing up (as far as I know, none of the stories I was exposed to were stories of Torres Strait Islanders).

For those of you in Sydney, there is an exhibition at the TAP Gallery (Level 1, 278 Palmer Street, Darlinghurst) in honour of International Women’s Day:

To commemorate International Women’s Day on Monday 8 March, Amnesty International NSW in conjunction with International Women’s Development Agency will be hosting a photography exhibition entitled ‘Women’s Eye on Peace’.

International Women’s Day provides an annual opportunity to celebrate the contribution and achievements of women around the world and inspire others to get active themselves. The IWDA ‘Women’s Eye on Peace’ photography exhibition supports this goal by providing a showcase of photographs taken by women, reflecting their own unique perspectives and life experiences.

Join us at 6pm on Wednesday 10 March to learn more about the stories behind the photos and hear from women who are playing a major role in human rights activism and development around the world. The evening will involve guest speakers from Amnesty and IWDA and will include light refreshments.

Opening night RSVP:nswsvawactiongroup@amnesty.org.au

The photographs will be on display at the TAP Gallery in Darlinghurst from Monday 8 March to Sunday 14 March.
