femLENS: Women at Work Campaign

It has been a long time since we’ve seen undistorted portraits of working women in print media. Since the start of the era of consumerism and social media, what we are exposed to is either airbrushed celebrities or the poverty on the other side of the social ladder.

We should move back to showing respect for and to working women! Working class people are the ones who keep this world spinning!

femLENS is starting the “Women at Work” campaign to celebrate women’s labour – manual, intellectual and domestic. Our goal is to create an alternative to mainstream stock images of women at work.

Send in your existing portraits of working women or create a new series to contribute to our CreativeCommons licensed photo archive. Images will be available under the “CC BY-NC-ND: (Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial NoDerivatives)” license. This license allows reusers to copy and distribute the material in any medium or format in an unmodified form only, for noncommercial purposes only, and only so long as attribution is given to the creator.

The archive will make these photographs available to anyone with a non-commercial mission – educational, anthropological, scientific perspective, as well as for article s about working women, with full creator attribution.

The images will also be presented in a zine towards the end of 2021.
