Today is International Women's Day. To celebrate, we share an updated version of our Women from Around the World slideshow.
You probably won't see any of these women on TV or on the covers of magazines (well, maybe someday). Instead, they are the women we meet in markets, on public transport, in the shops that they run, 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. But look into their eyes, and through life and its challenges, pride prevails.
With the gallery below, we celebrate the collective spirit of these women and the beauty of their diversity.
Women featured in the slideshow below are from: Bangladesh, Bolivia, Burma (Myanmar), China, Ecuador, Egypt, El Salvador, Greece, Guatemala, India, Iran, Jordan, Kyrgyzstan, Laos, Mexico, Nepal, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Thailand, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, and Vietnam.
