From India to Africa, tea fields to technology, women are the resilient hard-working backbones of their communities. These images by photographer Alison Wright showcase the magnetic stories of remarkable women living in post-conflict or hard-to-reach areas in developing countries whose perseverance is often overlooked. Wright’s vivid portraits illuminate a shared determination among women in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East to create better futures through creativity, ingenuity, and drive. They celebrate the individuals and grassroots organizations committed to finding creative solutions to the challenges these women face, because empowering women benefits not only the individuals and their families, but their villages, their nations, and our world.
