It has been a long time since we’ve seen undistorted portraits of working women in print media. Since the start of the era of consumerism and social media, what we are exposed to is either airbrushed celebrities or the poverty on the other side of the social ladder.

Are you interested in supporting femLENS?
There are a few ways you can support us:
1. Help us spread the word about our mission and our workshops. We would really appreciate it if you could share a post on Instagram and Facebook at least once per week, stating why you believe in the mission of our organisation. You could also share the provided templates and/or content.
2. We want to encourage you to take part in a collective photo project. Be our eyes and ears. Make a documentary photo story about the social issues in your community (or a present situation in your life), and we will help you to raise awareness about them. Let’s spread the word together and increase women’s vision in the media.
3. Organise a photo exhibition. A photo exhibition can be organised in any location: in an office, in a local cafe, on a street wall, under a bridge, on a fence, etc.
If you’re interested, please email us at info(at)femlens.com and we can speak about the details.
