OUR GOAL

The history of humanitarianism has been dominated by a masculine perspective in which women are frequently depicted as compassionate mother figures. By adopting a gendered perspective, we aim to deconstruct these stereotypes in order to gain a better understanding of the real actions and engagements of women humanitarians as well as the structures of power they established with their male colleagues and the beneficiaries of their aid.

HOW?

Three initiatives have been conceived to encourage public participation:
a) an exhibition, b) the creation of a Humanitari@n_Lab, and c) a web site where the public can find information about different activities, news, and videos recordings of different events.

EVENTS

UPCOMING
