[Competition] UWS Photography Contest – Through the Gender Lens

Organised by United Women Singapore

We have all heard some of these statements: ‘Girls should play with dolls and boys should play with trucks’, ‘Engineering is for boys’, ‘Girls are not interested in STEM subjects or careers’, ‘Boys don’t do ballet’, or ‘Boys don’t cry’ and many more.

These are just myths or stereotypes that limit boys and girls from achieving their potential in their areas of interest.

Here’s a chance for you to bust these myths!

Through your photos – challenge these stereotypes; Let your imagination soar and send us your inspirational pictures.


Add appropriate captions for each photo explaining how the photo befits the theme, in not more than 50 words.

Photo format:
JPEG or PNG, Max size of 10 MB.
