IMOW launched its latest online exhibition, “MAMA: Motherhood Around the Globe.” The rare and inspiring photographs, artwork, and stories in the exhibition depict women from all walks of life explaining how their role as a mother has affected them. While the importance of mothers figure remains the same throughout history and cultures, the experiences of mothers from one generation to the next has shifted drastically as cultures and societies have evolved.
The exhibition aims to turn inspiration into action, helping fuel a worldwide movement of advocates for mothers’ human rights and advances in maternal health. To do so, it has launched an online pledge that any visitor to the exhibition can sign in less than a minute. The pledge will be presented to the UN General Assembly in September 2012 to urge world leaders to make progress on the Millennium Development Goal of improved maternal health.
