The exhibition, featuring 17 portraits and stories of women, sets out to break stereotypes and tell the life stories of these women.  What is uncovered is picture upon picture of courage, compassion, strength and grace. “Women are very strong by nature. A woman can handle many things and achieve many things,” said one of the women. The launch ceremony took place on 6 September 2015 and featured guests speakers Ms. Naveed Arjumand (President of Pakistan Women Association HK) and Ms. Dorothy Lee (Secretary General of Hong Kong Catholic Commission for Labour Affairs).
