"Family of Woman," a photographic journey around the world, will be exhibited at the Georgia Tech College of Management from October 25 to November 17. Sponsored by the Georgia Tech Institute for Leadership and Entrepreneurship and Americans for UNFPA (United Nations Population Fund), the exhibit will launch October 25 with a 6 PM reception and 7 PM public symposium on the "Health and Rights of Women Everywhere."

The exhibit features women around the world - from Ethiopia to Peru to Indonesia - pictured living their lives as farmers, factory workers, soldiers, midwives, mothers, and daughters. The photos highlight the geographic, racial, ethnic, lifestyle, and socioeconomic diversity of women assisted by UNFPA's work.

UNFPA, the United Nations Population Fund, provides women's health care and promotes the rights of women around the world. Americans for UNFPA is dedicated to building American support for the work of UNFPA.

"'Family of Woman' provides pictorial lessons in women's empowerment and development," says Terry Blum, director of the Georgia Tech Institute for Leadership and Entrepreneurship. "Joining Americans for UNFPA as an exhibit co-sponsor allows us to bring vivid images and experiences of women of the world directly to our campus."

Photographers contributing to the exhibit include Julie Denesha, photo editor for the Washington Times; Dana Gluckstein, whose work is part of the permanent collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art; and Beth O'Donnell, whose upcoming book, Hearts of Gold, Angels in Africa, highlights extraordinary African women.

Speakers at the October 25 opening include Carol Hogue of the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University; Ruth Uwaifo Oyelere of Georgia Tech's School of Economics; Lynn Sibley of Emory University's Woodruff School of Nursing; and Anika Rahman, president of Americans for UNFPA.
