Fatherhood in Egypt, Sweden in focus at photo exhibit in downtown Cairo

“Father has principle responsibility to ensure his family, children’s sense of stability, security,” says Morsy

A photo exhibit entitled “Because I am a Father: Egyptian and Swedish Dads” was launched on 8 October and is set to be concluded on Tuesday at 9 pm. 

The exhibit consists of photos from Egypt and Sweden, portraying the universal role of fatherhood, promoting cultural exchange and gender equality, and is a joint undertaking by the Swedish Institute, the Embassy of Sweden in Cairo, the National Council for Women, UN Women Egypt, as well as Al Ismaelia for Real Estate Investment, and Soma Arts School and Gallery.

“This is an opportunity to take a closer look at the important role fathers have in the lives of their children, and how this impacts not only their family but society as a whole,” said Jan Thesleff, the ambassador of Sweden to Egypt, adding, “Such artistic initiatives are an excellent way to create cultural dialogue around important topics such as gender equality.”

“The most important message from the exhibit is that fatherhood is a decision to bear responsibility,” said Maya Morsy, president of the National Council for Women at the exhibit launch, adding, “The father has the principle responsibility to ensure his family and children’s sense of stability and security.”
