On Friday, 14 September the Musée de la Femme de Marrakech opened its doors for the first time to the public. We would like to congratulate the whole museum team to this wonderful work!

The opening exhibition is a huge success. It is called “Rural Women, Artist Women” and is a homage to the rural women across Morocco. The exhibition shows different objects from the daily life of rural women: costumes, carpets, jewellery, accessory, painting, photography, contemporary art…

The exhibition “On the skin” will be opened at the Women’s Museum in Meran, Italy on 7th September.
 
The art and practice of tattooing can be found all over the world. It is a global cultural phenomenon. Tattoo culture is still practiced on every continent up until today.
“On the skin” is an ethnographic photography series about the custom and culture of facial tattoos of the Chin-women in the mountains of Burma.
The photographer, Paola Marcello, produced this photo-series in a remote mountain area. She witnessed and documented this acient custom, which soon will be extinct. This large-seized portrait-serives is a tribute to the beauty, the story, the courage and dignity of these women.
Curated by Luca Chistè, photographer and curator from Trento.

The 9th of March 2018 the Iranian Women’s Movement Museum was inaugurated in exile with the exibition “From Evin, with Love”.

This important event took place in Humanity House in Den Haag, the Netherlands.

Curator and founder of the Iranian Women’s Wovement Museum, Mansoureh Shoajee, could together with former Nobel peace prize winner, Shirin Ebadi, welcome a moved public.

The exhibition consists of objects of handicrafts made by political women prisoners in the Evin Prison in Iran, and photos and biographs of these women. Some of the objects are made as gifts to the children of the women, whom they were not able to see during their long time in prison. Some of the women are still prisoners.

The International Association of Women’s Museums was invited to the inauguration, and our president Mona Holm made a speech on behalf of all our members all over the world.

This museum and exhibition is a truly extrordinary achievment. We are so proud of having Shirin Ebadi as the Godmother of our International Association of Women’s Museums, and we support her wish that one day they will be able to open their Women’s Museum also in Teheran.
