I came across this a bit late, but definitely still worth sharing.

An exhibition currently up at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston called "She Who Tells a Story: Women Photographers from Iran and the Arab World" features the work of twelve pioneering photographers:
Jananne Al-Ani
Boushra Almutawakel
Gohar Dashti
Rana El Nemr
Lalla Essaydi
Shadi Ghadirian
Tanya Habjouqa
Rula Halawani
Nermine Hammam
Rania Matar
Shirin Neshat
Newsha Tavakolian

Photography can play an important role in developing social change and bringing awareness and it can be used as a tool for empowerment. Who better to reflect on social issues, traditions and identity than women photographers in countries where their roles in society are at a splintering and where traditions and empowerment often collide.
