Re-imagining women’s sexual and reproductive rights

Using photography, women on the margins are re-writing the dominant narratives and re-claiming power in the fight against AIDS. From young women in Uganda challenging the perceptions of women who use drugs, to former sex workers in Myanmar providing legal advice to others, and transwomen enacting self-care, they are changing the narrative on women’s rights.

We worked with participatory photography organisation PhotoVoice to bring together advocates to explore their own stories through photos and words.

Featuring photographers from projects in Myanmar and Uganda – including our Partnership to Inspire, Transform and Connect the HIV response programme – they are using the work they produced to advocate for their sexual and reproductive rights.

PhotoVoice is a UK based charity with a vision for a world in which everybody has the opportunity to represent themselves and tell their own story. Its mission is to promote the ethical use of photography for positive social change, through delivering innovative participatory photography projects.

The Partnership to Inspire, Transform and Connect the HIV response programme is a strategic partnership between Frontline AIDS, Aidsfonds and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
