Some images describing women’s everyday life in different parts of the world.

The 8th of March. The International Women’s Day. Beyond the commercial aspects that, so often, are able on this occasion to draw the attention, the real daily life of women in different regions are not carefully considered.

By this post, we would simply like to share a sequence of images published – on its website – by the Italian news agency ANSA. The title used by this last is March 8: many ways to be a woman.

The 18 pictures show concrete – individual and collective – moments of women’s life in different contexts of the world: from the hard work in a factory of bricks in Nepal to a women demonstration in New Delhi or in London (in this case, against domestic violence); from «women soldiers engaged in peacekeeping» to moments of solidarity and different ways to celebrate the 8th of March.
