On Thursday 7th March, Celine Cottalorda, Technical Adviser and Delegate for the promotion and protection of women’s rights, and photographer Anthony Alberti, otherwise known as Mr One Teas, launched the photography which is currently displayed on the facade of the Ministry of State.

Composed of 76 black and white portraits, it honours everyone who is participating in the Committee for the Promotion and Protection of Women’s Rights, which was established in October.

“I was keen to highlight the women and men of the Committee but also those I have met and supported since its inception,” said Céline Cottalorda.

The people photographed were invited to choose a chalk board bearing one of the following inscriptions: Together, March 8, United, Rights, Struggle, Equality, Respect and Women.

Prince Albert agreed to participate in the campaign, while the government says the Minister of State, President of the National Council, the Mayor of Monaco and Government Councilors and Ministers are all eager to contribute to the success of the #8MarsMonaco operation.

“My goal,” said Alberti, “is to create real smiles from those who have chosen the values ​​they want to represent.”

In order to reach a wide audience, the photographic work has been available in various media: in the press, on Monaco Info and on the social networks of the Prince’s Government under the title # 8MarsMonaco.
