Yagazie Emezi interviewed women in Liberia about their body image. Nineteen-year-old Emily told Emezi, "First of all, I thank God for giving me this body. You have to love yourself the most... I say plenty things about people but, you know, you must look at yourself first before you criticise someone else."
SCherkaoui/Open Society Foundation West Africa
Sylvain Cherkaoui photographed women in West Africa. Cherkaoui believes that women are key to tapping into the productivity of the continent, however they are restricted by cultural ideas, laws that discriminate and wage gaps.
