"100 Men Without Prejudice" - A Portuguese Campaign Against Gender Discrimination



100 Portuguese athletes, scientists, actors, journalists, musicians, politicians, doctors, fashion designers, film makers, writers and more have been photographed wearing high-heeled shoes. 
On March 8, International Women's Day, all photos were put on display at CCB (Belém Cultural Centre).

This would be a most thought provoking exhibition, Jose. If there were to be an equivalent "100 Women without Prejudice" exhibition, I wonder what item of attire they might each wear?

Interesting exhibition, I like shoes, but this is different to see them at men's feet.

Interesting campaign ! :)

Kate said...

I cannot help but feel amused. Did the poor guys feel left out?! Julie's comment is interesting. I guess a tie could be one choice (my other thought is unmentionable).

I can think of other ways to get this point across. Sheesh! 100 women wearing 'athletic supporters'? I'd be 'jock'eying for position.

Interesting campaign!

VP said...

Funny and interesting, but I am not sure if these fancy things really work...

What an interesting exhibit. I'd love to see it in person. I must say, the photographs of the men are very powerful.

I'm all for it! Nice selection of photos, too.

Yes, I figured you'd been out for awhile. Hope all is well...I just came back and figured I'd stack the deck with a new moniker...thus "Fotolosopher." :)

Very thought provoking indeed.

RedPat said...

I must say that they are a good-looking group of guys! And they wear the shoes well. ;-)

An exhibit worth seeing.

Christina Andromeda said...

This is really very supportive for women!

Randy said...

Great campaign, I would love to see it in person.

I like this a lot and would love to see it. Thought-provoking.

Ha! Perth, very funny! I rarely wear high heels, too painful. But I'll model for the athletic supporter exhibit.

Jack said...

It is an interesting concept, JM. I wonder where they found high heeled shoes big enough for these guys. (I wear a USA 14 shoe, 48 in Europe.)

Rhodesia said...

Interesting collection. I could not even walk in those heels these days though I used to! Diane

What a beautiful exhibit. I love how seriously the men took their roll and posed. They didn't mimic, try to camp it up, or act silly. What a bunch of super-cool dudes, and all very handsome. The choice and consistency of theme with all the personalized variations is brilliant.
