Walk in Her Shoes: Exhibit Opening

[NOTE: The exhibit opening of Walk in Her Shoes on 20 February 2024 (Tuesday) is moved from 2:30 PM to 10:00 AM.]

The United Nations (UN) Gender Thematic Group (GTG), in collaboration with several partners including the University of the Philippines Center for Women’s and Gender Studies (UPCWGS); Bayi, Inc.; SafeCity; the UP Center for Women’s Studies Foundation, Inc. (UPCWSFI); and the UP College of Fine Arts, is organizing an experiential exhibit titled “Walk in Her Shoes” to support the 18-Day Campaign to End Violence Against Women (VAW). The exhibit was initially launched in December 2023. 

Previously housed at the Commission on Human Rights (CHR), the UN’s Walk in Her Shoes exhibit will be relocated to its new venue at the College of Fine Arts (Arts and Design Building) in UP Diliman, Quezon City. 

The exhibit will be accessible to visitors on 20-29 February 2024. It showcases stories from various sectors of women and girls, highlighting the different forms of gender-based violence they encounter on a daily basis. The primary goal of the exhibit is to raise awareness about the pervasive nature of VAW, encourage reflection on the prevailing social norms that perpetuate this harmful behavior, and mobilize action to eradicate VAW. 

There will be a program at the exhibit opening on 20 February 2024 (Tuesday), 2:30 PM.
