"In Latvia's cultural space and social environment, feminism has increasingly strengthened its position in recent years as a phenomenon on the agenda. Unfortunately, it is often called as an ideology brought from the West, not as one of the goals for promoting the general well-being of Latvia, "commented curator Mētra Saberova.

The works of the Latvian artists at the exhibition are united by a strong desire to create stories that testify to the need to hear the voices of women.
