Empowering women

I played the lead role in establishing a presence for UNICEF photography on Medium, kicking off the launch by composing and producing “Empowering women,” a photo essay celebrating International Women’s Day. The piece centers on ways we can empower women—and how doing so is central to achieving gender equality.

The piece was featured front and center on the global UNICEF homepage.

It was also shared on UNICEF’s global Facebook page, receiving nearly 7,800 likes, 80 comments, and just over 1,040 shares within two days of posting.

Additionally, it was shared from UNICEF’s global Twitter handle, garnering 240 retweets and 185 favorites within one day of posting.

 

The piece is contained within the collection “Photography and social change,” which I’ll continue to grow, produce content for, and manage.
