The #8MarsMonaco campaign is gaining traction ahead of the main event on Friday. Initiated as part of International Women’s Day, the campaign is promoting Monaco’s increased commitment to women’s rights in the Principality and across the globe.

Posters featuring key personalities, including Prince Albert II, have been springing up all over the Principality this week. Spearheaded by Celine Cottalorda, it is the Chief Officer’s first major campaign for the Committee for the Promotion and Protection of Women’s Rights, which was created by the Monaco Government in October 2018.

The public awareness campaign for equal rights will officially kick off on Friday 8th March in the presence of Minister of State Serge Telle, President of the National Council Stéphane Valeri, Minister of the Interior Patrice Cellario, and Minister of Health and Social Affairs Didier Gamerdinger.

Photographer Anthony Alberti, otherwise known as ‘Mr One Teas’, has committed his talents to the initiative, photographing the personalities involved in the campaign.

In the leadup to Friday’s event, Celine Cottalorda has been enthusiastically sharing its progress on Twitter:

 

Also on Friday, the Club des Residents Etrangers de Monaco (CREM) will be publishing a calendar in the form of an art book, featuring 16 women engaged in Monegasque life.

Titled ‘The Naked Soul’, the project was created in collaboration with photographer Amedeo M. Turello, and proceeds will go towards two projects of the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation assisting women in Chad and Guinea.
