Visible Majority photo exhibit celebrates cultural diversity
Show features 60 photographs of University of Saskatchewan students
A new photo exhibit at the University of Saskatchewan strives to honour women of all ethnicities and backgrounds by celebrating cultural diversity.
The exhibit, Visible Majority, is being put on by the U of S's International Women's Movement. It's comprised of 60 photographs of female students on campus.
"This is really to celebrate diversity on campus ... women who are indigenous, women of colour, to show us we are here," said Renata Huyghebaert, one of the organizers of the exhibit.
Organizers say the exhibit also examines stereotypes about female beauty standards seen in the media and beauty industry.
Priscila Silva, who took the exhibit's photographs, said women have a voice.
"Instead of self-victimizing ourselves and further marginalizing ourselves, we come forward as a group," Silva said.
The event runs from March 2-5 on the first floor of Place Riel Student Centre.
