Online Exhibition

In May 2015, the Alliance Française de Maseru hosted the exhibition Women in Resistance (WIR) by French photographer Pierre-Yves Ginet. Twelve photographic portraits and written profiles of Basotho women sponsored by Vodacom Lesotho Foundation were displayed alongside Pierre-Yves Ginet’s work.

In November 2015, the twelve portraits moved to the Morija Museum and Archives (MMA), where the WIR exhibition was officially reopened in partnership with the Vodacom Lesotho Foundation and The Hub. With support from the Vodacom Lesotho Foundation, the texts of the twelve portraits were translated into Sesotho, so that the inspiring stories of the women profiled could be accessible in both languages.

In February, eleven members of The Hub were trained in the basics of portrait photography and journalistic writing. They worked in pairs to photograph and interview six inspiring women in Morija.

On March 30, 2016 The Hub opened the exhibition of the students’ work at Morija Museum & Archives. It will remain open and free for viewing April – May. Schools are invited to bring classes for guided tours of the exhibition, and an essay writing competition is open to High School students based on the exhibition.

When the exhibition is taken down in Morija at the end of May, it will remain available on this website.
