UN Women Morocco, the French Institute of Morocco, and the French Development Agency are launching “Equality in your street”, a photography competition inviting young people, aged between 18 and 35, to present their vision of gender equality.
The contest was organized in the context of the global campaign “Generation Equality ‘, marking the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Program of Action which aims to achieve progress towards equality. But, 25 years later, Beijing’s promise has only been partially kept, and social justice is still inaccessible to too many women, as the French Institute of Morocco explains.
To highlight the unfinished work of gender equality and women’s rights, UN Women is launching the global campaign “Generation Equality: For Women’s Rights and an Equal Future” which aims to demand pay equity, the equal sharing of unpaid care, and domestic work, the end of sexual harassment and all forms of violence against women and girls, the health care services that meet their needs, and their equal participation in politics and decision-making in all areas of life.
Candidates have until September 15, 2021, to send their photographs. Photographs will first be sent to the 12 French Institutes of the Kingdom and the Alliance française de Safi, which will each select one candidate. Among the 13 candidates chosen, three laureates will then be selected by a jury composed of representatives of the French Institute, the Embassy of France, the French Development Agency, and UN Women.
