Women and Water: Submit Photos With Flickr

Around the world, women and girls are often on the front lines of water issues in their communities. Across the U.S., too, women rely on fresh water for their lives and livelihoods, their health and their happiness.

Now, women everywhere are stepping up to encourage smarter choices about water and the natural places that provide it.

Celebrate International Women’s Day by showing what water means to you. Get outside with your mothers, daughters, sisters and friends and take pictures that show the many ways women connect to water and share them with our online community on Flickr™. Your photo could be featured as the Photo of the Day on nature.org — we'll also be picking our favorites and adding them to our Clean Water Quilt graphic. Check back in March to see if your photo was chosen for the quilt!

Not familiar with Flickr? Flickr™ is an online photo sharing website that is made up of many groups, including a Nature Conservancy group. You can add your photos to the Nature Conservancy photo-sharing group and quickly enter many images for others to see.
