Event description

We invite you to send photo of a dad with their child/ children in an everyday situation and include a caption “Father’s Role for Gender Equality”. The child/children must be under the age of 12. The contest is in connection to the HeForShe Run that will be held on 8 March 2020 in celebration of International Women’s Day.

UN Women, The Embassy of Sweden, and Indonesia Business Coalition for Women Empowerment with the support from IKEA Indonesia are organising “Menjadi Ayah” photo contest.

The “Menjadi Ayah” photo contest is inspired by the work of Swedish photographer Johan Bävman “Swedish Dads”. The Swedish Dads has been shown in 65 countries, including in Indonesia – Jakarta and Banda Aceh. Johan Bävman’s Swedish Dads showcased portraits 45 fathers who choose to stay at home with their children for at least six months. Johan Bävman examines why these fathers have chosen to stay at home with their children and how their relationship with their partners and their children has changed as a result. The works of Johan Bävman aims to show the effects of gender equality on parenting, both for an individual and for society.
