Artists from Spain and across the globe are showcasing multimedia artwork in Madrid, Spain, to call attention to women's rights. Showcasing 60 works by 59 international artists, the exhibition, titled "ALLIED: Women Change The World," will run from March 10 to September 4 at the capital's CentroCentro Cibeles cultural center.

Organized by a Spain-based NGO dubbed the Alianza por la Solidaridad (Alliance for Solidarity), the show features works of graphic design, collage, painting and drawing by a range of contemporary artists. Curated by Emilio Gil, the collection of art seeks to “increase the visibility of women who dedicate their lives to defending and implementing women’s rights worldwide,” according to the organizers.

The 60 works will be on sale throughout the exhibition period, and the profits will be used to finance Alianza por la Solidaridad projects related to women’s rights. The 30-year-old NGO dedicates a large portion of its efforts and projects in the 17 countries in which it operates to women’s rights.
