Women In Myanmar

Here in Myanmar I love talking with women about their experiences and concerns. In a Theravada Buddhist society that values men more than women (men are considered to have intrinsic honor that a women can never possess), women face many challenges. I am inspired by how they rise to meet these. Like women all over the world, they do whatever it takes to care for the well-being of their families. I hope these images communicate the strength and dignity I see when I look into their eyes and their lives.
