What exactly does equality among various genders mean in today’s society? What consequences does it have in a person’s career and pursuit of goals? Are media consumed and produced differently by men and women? Why do we all want to label ourselves, and why does everything always need to be defined?
Human rights apply to all people irrespective of their gender identity. However, our endeavours for non-discrimination and equal treatment frequently come up against obstacles. Our Topic of the Day “Equality” will address human rights with respect to gender equality with a specific focus on women in photojournalism. In addition, we will examine the modern treatment of the LGBTQ scene. The fluid boundaries between the genders are reflected in photography, providing a glimpse into the minds of a broad range of personalities.
