Celebrating women’s strengths

This exhibition represents a small portion of the last five years of photos submitted for the International Women’s Day Photo Competition held by Qulliit. This year there were no new submissions and so no winner, but the sampling of photographs from the last five years brought in a small crowd to Saturday afternoon’s reception. The photos on display represent women’s strength, family, work, community and traditional clothing. They will be on display from March 8 until April 6. (Photo by Courtney Edgar)
