SEE IT FROM HER +

'Photography helps people to see' Berenice Abbott

See It From Her + (SIFH+) is a project that supports women and those who feel oppressed because of their gender identity, to have a voice and be heard through photography and image.

SIFH+ is exclusively run by, and supports all women (trans, intersex and cis) non-binary, agender and gender variant people.

 

SIFH+ runs group photography projects, 1-1 mentoring and exhibitions offering a creative platform for individuals to tell their own stories, share their experiences and express themselves in an accessible and different way. SIFH+ also hosts events, conducts research and facilitates discussion around gender discrimination, sexism and representation.

Our main goal is for women and agenger, gender variant and non-binary people to be able to represent themselves and be in control of their own identity.

 

  • We want to see a better representation of women, non-binary, agender and gender variant people in positions of power and their views and ideas understood as important.

  • We want to smash stereotypes around gender identity and challenge sexism in all its forms.

  • We want to see women and oppressed genders to be able to speak openly about issues that affect them without being attacked.

  • We want women to stop being objectified, sexualised and abused.

  • We want non-binary, agender and gender variant people to not be filed into binary genders and for their identity to be understood and taken seriously

  • We want those who are trans to feel safe to live in the gender that they are and not be discriminated and abused because of their appearance

  • We want women, non-binary, agender and gender variant people to be visible.

Through creating safe, supportive, inclusive and compassionate spaces and using photography as tool for self-expression, the same media that often misrepresents oppressed genders, SIFH+ aims to empower women, non-binary, agender and gender variant people to speak out about their experiences and feel able to share their stories – taking back ownership of their identity.

We want to provide women, agender, gender variant and non-binary people with the tools and support they need to have a voice and be heard.
