Giving Women Power Over AIDS On Tour in the US


"Giving Women Power Over AIDS" is a museum-quality walk-through travelling exhibit. It is comprised of ten double-sided 'pop-up' panels that are approximately 6 feet tall and 3 feet wide.  Of these, two pairs of panels stand together to form double panels that are approximately 6 feet tall and 6 feet wide.

In addition, there is a one-sided 'attract' panel that stands away from the rest of the exhibit to welcome viewers. 

The exhibit can fit in a variety of spaces and venues.  On average, the entire exhibit requires 1,300 square feet but can fit in a space as small as 600 square feet. 

One side of the exhibit displays an adaptation of “In Her Mother’s Shoes”. In 2002, reporter Paula Bock and photographer Betty Udesen of the Seattle Times traveled to Zimbabwe to get a first hand look at the reality of HIV/AIDS. The resulting photo-essay tells the story of Martha, one of some 11 million AIDS orphans in sub-Saharan Africa. To see the photo essay, go to:

No two spaces are exactly the same so actual placements should be adjusted. Start with these two lay-outs below as a general idea and adapt as necessary.
