Photographer's Note

International Women’s Day is celebrated on March 8th each year across the globe. IWD is about celebrating the vital role women play in their families, communities and countries while recognising that significant barriers to achieving women's economic achievement and gender equality continue to exist in the third world countries in particular. At the heart of every human experience is the desire to survive, prosper and to live without fear, hunger or suffering. To imagine how life could be better and then have the means to change it. Yet, everyday millions of people cannot fulfil their most basic needs, let alone attain their dreams or desires.

You probably won’t see this young woman road worker on TV or on the covers of magazines. Instead, she is one of the many women we meet in markets, on public transport, in the shops, in rural villages, on city streets. They are the everyday human landscape -mothers, grandmothers, daughters, sisters, friends, colleagues- perhaps sometimes overlooked or taken for granted whose daily struggles seldom capture world attention.

I am drawn to this very engaging warm face.
She deserves a much needed break and be with her child from the hardwork by the road side just outside the wall of Taj Mahal. But her eyes show glimpses of determination and the challenges she had probably gone through, the moments of joy filled with hope and pride.

Happy Women’s Day, my today's upload is dedicated to women all over the world and may they be a potential contributor in the development of their own family and communities.
