The publication is a result of KARAT’s project “Through their eyes, through ours. Raising public awareness about development problems faced by women from developing countries in the EU Eastern Neighbourhood, Balkans and Central Asia”.
The publication consists of photographs taken by women from Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Montenegro, Georgia, Macedonia, Moldova, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Serbia and Ukraine showing women from those countries in their economic context. The photographs are part of an exhibition titled “Through Their Eyes”, shown in Poland, Slovakia, Germany, Switzerland, Romania and Belgium in 2009 and 2010. The publication also includes a very brief overview of the socio-economic situation of women from the countries covered by the competition.
