Women Up is supposed to overturn the expression “man up”,
and to break apart the stereotype underlying the invitation to “act like a woman”,
by widening the perspective out of all proportions.
Women Up is an action that gives a name to things, utilizes the founding power of language and reminds us once again that actions speak louder.

Women Up is a relentless but necessary and engaging obstacle race, whose projects, shows, events, artworks, calls, voices, videos and data will emphasize the centrality of the female gaze and La Galleria Nazionale's inquiry into feminism.
