This museum is "a museum without walls", and it is almost entirely virtual. The International Museum of Women (IMOW) exhibitions and the podcasts of their events are online, while their "Extraordinary Voices, Extraordinary Change" speaker series takes place in San Francisco. Visitors can start by choosing whether they want to read the site in English, Spanish, Arabic or French. The online exhibit titled "Curating Change" is a must see for visitors, as four influential women from the IMOW community act as guest curators and choose from among the global array of art archives on IMOW. One of the selections here is a series of photographs called "Working For Just Salt", which was created by the Indian photographer Selvaprakash Lakshmanan. It documents the women who mine salt, and who frequently lose their eyesight as a hazard of the job. The stunningly gorgeous black and white photos belie their subject matter, but hopefully garner attention to the cause of these women, who are given no safety protection from their harsh environment.
