Women Equality  in the end of the world

I took these photos in various villages in Northern and Central India. All of them exposed me, a Western tourist, to the phenomena of hard physical labor of women and girls in the fields and in construction around the country.

For me it was shocking– in my society these kinds of jobs are performed by men, here the labor was shared equally by men and women.

I was happy to see that this equality was kept in the education system, both girls and boys went to school!

As Bahwullah, a Bahai prophet wrote : “Women and men have been and will always be equal in the sight of god…”
