Many people have given their time, resources and photographs to Voices on the Rise: Afghan Women Making the News.

The curators would like to thank all of the photographers who have contributed their photographs for free for the use of the exhibition, as well as Aina, Pajhwok Afghan News and Sayara Media and Communication. Please take a look at their stories and websites.

They would also like to thank former Afghanistan Ambassador to Canada, Omar Samad (now the current Afghanistan Ambassador to France), and all of the staff at the Embassy of Afghanistan in Ottawa, as well as Leslie Knott, Simon Last, Michelle Craig, Monika Delmos, John Keating, Mohammad Farshid Hakimyar, Marianna Tzabiras, Catherine Franche, Elise Jacob, Susan Bell, Danielle Gaynor, Miguel Castro and Marie Struthers for their on-going advice and support.
