International Women in Photo Association


International Women in Photo is a French non profit aiming to create global change and reach gender equality and women empowerment. IWPA acts as a platform by promoting and highlighting women’s voices around the worlds providing exposure and support to women photographers and visual storytellers

The roots of IWPA’s goals lie in the underrepresentation of women photographers, who do not receive sufficient recognition or assignments, and whose work comprises a tiny percentage of all the photographs we see daily in the press, social media, museums and art exhibitions.
