Our second print issue, themed ‘Global Womxnhood’, unites and celebrates the work and voices of women from across the world. The aim of this issue is not only to broaden definitions of womanhood but also to raise the profile of the work of different global women’s movements which are working to highlight injustices and human rights violations. At the core of this lies our underlying commitment to promoting arts as advocacy and providing a platform for self-representation.
Alongside this issue we have produced a 3-month photography project with 20 female photographers around the world where each photographer has responded to the brief; ‘I am a woman’ There is no one way of defining what it personally means to identify as a woman – and we wanted to leave it to a community of photographers to open up these interpretations.
Just as the second issue of shado seeks to broaden ideas of womxnhood, so does this photography project. Identifying as a woman means different things to different people depending on context – and we believe it is crucial to recognise this and gain a more global perspective on the topic through spotlighting the different experiences of women around the world.
