Exhibition to dispel Portuguese stereotypes

A photography exhibition aimed at debunking common stereotypes about Portuguese women opens in Fribourg today.

Entitled ‘Beyond clichés: portraits of Portuguese women in Nyon', features 165 photos of Portuguese women from a diverse array of professions, including an architect, a police officer, and a psychologist.

It was co-created by Mariana Mendes, a Portuguese international relations graduate living in Nyon, in an attempt to counter the stereotypes that she encountered in Switzerland.
