The girls decided to put on this exhibition to break down gender stereotypes and create a broader view of gender equality.

We are hoping for everyone to open their eyes and see that men and women are equals.

One gender is not better than the other.

We’re all equal no matter which way we view it.

The girls have shown such enthusiasm and passion for a theme that is very valid in this modern world.

Julia Willson is the Links to Learning Program Facilitator from the Southern Region Business Enterprise Centre. 

“I’m extremely proud of the girls’ integrity, as well as their eye for photography and their dedication to the project,” Ms Wilson said.

The girls are hoping Narooma residents and visitors will gain the knowledge and hopefully the understanding of the importance of gender equality.

“We hope that you walk away feeling awakened,” says Link to Learning student Shannon Carles, aged 15.

Narooma’s Librarian Assistant Wendy Jackson welcomed the show.

 “We’re really happy to be hosting this exhibition and giving the girls an opportunity to show their work, especially as they are exploring such a valid topic,” Ms Jackson said.

The exhibition runs until Friday, August 31st at the Narooma Library.
