Action and round table of NoSinFotografas initiative, consisting of an online platform of public commitment in favor of female presence, and an open discussion about gender parity in the field of photography.
NoSinFotografas is a public commitment in favor of female presence supported by more than 700 signatories in the field of photography. Its objective is to promote, make visible and make visible the work of women dedicated to photography and achieve equal representation in the sector.
Inspired by the No_Sin_Mujeres platform of the academic context, a group of authors creates this online initiative to promote the #NoSinFotografas campaign, with which they want to increase the number of women in debate and knowledge spaces, which so often reflect the power structures.
The people on this list, as a first step, publicly commit themselves not to participate as a speaker in any photographic event (debates, round tables, jury contests and any other event related to photography in which we participate as guests or organizers) of more of two speakers where there is not at least one woman as an expert. Likewise, they urge that at least 40% be women, as recommended by ORGANIC LAW 3/2007, of March 22, for the effective equality of women and men.
Aware of the symbolic nature of this initiative, each case will have its particular conditions and there are other problems in the sector, related to the axes of class, gender and race. For Art Photo Bcn they propose an action accompanied by a discussion table.
