I was one of 25 women artists invited to take part in the MU+P/ART Festival last November. The festival, held in Tegucigalpa, brought together women artists and human rights groups to denounce injustice and violence through photography, street art, poetry, and music.
My exhibition photographed 19 Honduran human rights defenders to show their work as leaders, as well as their everyday life.
The aim is to give a closer look on who they are: women with an essential mission and role in this society. Complete with their passions, dreams, hobbies, challenges and fears.
Working in Honduras with Trócaire for the last year I became aware of the need to promote the voices of these women. People in Honduras need to hear from women human rights defenders to hear of their stories and their struggles.
We must all be more aware of what is happening outside of our bubble, in some of the most forgotten corners of Honduras, and recognize how many things we have in common with our fighters. This will hopefully lead us to understand that we are not so different and that we have many common goals.
