“Draw me gender equality” is an educational exhibition created in 2022 by Cartooning for Peace and available from 2023 to education professionals. It is presented for the first time at the Centre Paris Anim’ Jacques Bravo.
Illustrated with press cartoons from all over the world, this exhibition retraces, with humour and commitment, the journey of a lifetime: from birth to old age, it addresses the challenges and persistent problems of gender inequality, and shows the long struggle of women for equal rights.
Ghada Hatem, gynaecologist and obstetrician, founder of the Maison des Femmes de Saint-Denis, is the editor of the exhibition texts.
In 2017, the #MeToo movement called for the liberation of the voice of victims of sexual harassment. Millions of women from all over the world spoke with one voice to testify about the abuse they had suffered. Although our society seems to be engaged in a necessary reflection on the status of women, with equality between women and men as a goal, respect for the rights of each woman is still far from being guaranteed. In France as in the four corners of the globe.
Composed of 30 press cartoons from all over the world (and in particular from Europe), it looks back at women’s rights after #MeToo. While participating in the denunciation of injunctions, inequalities and violence against women, it offers a plurality of views and supports, with humour, impertinence and the strength of the drawing, the feminist struggles and their determining stakes.
