The W100 exhibition, which will run until the end of August, kicked off last Friday night with a special celebration honouring the women involved.

Belgian presenter Annabelle Van Nieuwenhuyse started the evening with some words of welcome, followed by a few interviews in Dutch, French and English with a few of the women displayed at the event.

The event continued with a dance session, choreographed by Elles pour Elles, a Polish organisation against domestic violence. “We are very proud of helping 127 women so far. 127 women breaking their silence and stopping the violence,” the group explained.

Finally, the organisers of the exhibition handed out flowers, followed by a group picture.
