Events: Violence Unseen Travelling Exhibition New Dates / Edinburgh and South Lanarkshire

Violence Unseen Photography exhibition exploring forms of violence against women that are still misunderstood, hidden and unacknowledged by mainstream society

Over the past decades there have been dramatic changes to public attitudes around some aspects of men’s violence against women. Yet domestic abuse, sexual violence and other forms of violence against women are still prevalent in Scotland today, especially for groups of women who face other forms of discrimination; women with learning disabilities, women who sell sex, lesbian, bisexual and trans (LBT) and black and minority ethnic women.

To create Violence Unseen, Zero Tolerance and award-winning photographer Alicia Bruce have worked with groups and individuals affected by men’s violence to create photographs that explore the types of violence against women that remain unseen and unacknowledged by mainstream society. The photographs shine a light on the types of violence against women that still remain unacceptably hidden and better represent the constellation of women’s lived experiences.

Our exhibition has been travelling all over Scotland since 2018, and we are thrilled to invite everyone to the exhibition of these photos.
