After charming audiences in India, the “Women Changing India” exhibition has been travelling around European cities.
Between May last year and this January, over 116,000 visitors have flocked to the exhibition in Milan, London, Brussels and Paris to admire the collection of photos highlighting the essential role of women in India today. The showing at the Petit Palais in Paris drew more than 60,000 visitors, making it one of the best-attended displays the museum put on in 2011.
During the exhibition, an album featuring “100 Photos for Press Freedom” drawn from the Women Changing India collection was published by the Reporters Without Borders organisation. 150,000 copies have been printed and the album is now on sale at press kiosks and bookshops in France.
