Images of Gender

Global Health 50/50 have a gallery of images representing gender around the world.

“Gender permeates all aspects of our lives. It stratifies society, defines opportunities and shapes our identity. And yet there is a global tendency to reduce the dynamic, varied and complex nature of gender to a singular image of woman-as-other. In contemporary consciousness, gender’s face is invariably female. This is gender is our challenge to this rigid and reductive way of seeing gender.”

There are some great photographs in the gallery. These were my favourites:

Markevich Volha Fedorauna by Andrei Liankevic

 

Harry Pregnant” by J.J. Irvine

When looking at the gallery, it is important to hover over each image and read the detailed description of how this relates to gender and identification.
