The heritage of handicrafts as a source of women’s empowerment is the theme of an exhibition held at Bardo Museum to mark the 61st anniversary of the promulgation of the Personal Status Code.
The event is held on August 11-21 at the initiative of the Centre of Research, Studies, Documentation and Information on Women (CREDIF), in collaboration with the National Heritage Institute, the National Office of Tunisian handicrafts, the Bardo Museum and the Museum of Ksar Saïd.
The exhibition entitled ‘Women and Heritage: from Traditional Know-how to Empowerment,’ is a voyage through time. Four pavilions dedicated to weaving, embroidery, pottery and revisited heritage showcase the ancient know-how.
The exhibition, which was inaugurated by Minister of Women, Family and Children Neiva Labadie, offers the opportunity to pay tribute to craftswomen and highlight heritage as a source of women’s economic empowerment, said CREDIT Director Dalenda Larguèche.
