Photo from "Through Her Eyes" exhibit by Elizabeth Stanton

Elizabeth Stanton says she believes in the power of sport to transform lives. Her documentary photo project "Through Her Eyes," which seeks to promote athletics for women and girls worldwide, will be showcased in the lobby of the YWCA Evanston/North Shore until May 10.

"We are excited to exhibit Liz Stanton’s photographs because her work is aligned with ours," said Karen Singer, president/CEO of the YWCA Evanston/North Shore. "Sports empower women and girls. Participation helps break gender barriers and changes both the way society views women, their roles and the way they view themselves and their potential."

"You can’t be what you can’t see," says Ms. Stanton, and in many developing countries women face barriers getting into sports. This means that they miss out on the health benefits, confidence, and character building aspects of athletics. They lack role models."
