International Women's Day 2014 - Celebrating the Diversity of Women

Woman in Durbar Square

In Kathmandu near Durbar Square, I spied this attractive woman standing a few feet away from me. Amidst the noise and chaos of the street she seemed calm and lost in her own thoughts.

Did you know?

First Nations mom & childThe first country to grant women the right to vote in the modern era was New Zealand in 1893.

The first woman to rule a country as an elected leader in the modern era was Sirimavo Bandaranaike of Sri Lanka, who was elected as prime minister of the island nation in 1960 and later re-elected in 1970.

The world's first novel, The Tale of Genji, was published in Japan around A.D. 1000 by female author Murasaki Shikibu.


Girls in Ethiopia

While living in Ethiopia, we frequently walked the many trails heading up to remote villages. Although we didn't speak their language, a smile has no boundaries, and we enjoyed many a Sunday afternoon with the local people.

Photographer: Nancy Sathre-Vogel Website:

Russian girl

I remember her as the girl with the unusual eyes. This young Russian in traditional costume greeted guests arriving at a tourist destination with offerings of sweet bread and a smile.

Photographer: Evelyn Hannon Website:

Shy Indian women

I met these women in a rural village in Ajabgarh, Rajasthan, India. They started off shy but soon warmed up to me. They blew me away working in their spotless brightly colored saris.

Photographer: Jen Pollack Bianco Website:

Older Bolivian woman

She is one of the indigenous peoples that travel weekly to Tarabuco, Bolivia, for the traditional Sunday market. The hat this lady wears is typically worn by the older generation and suits her so well.

Photographer: Lydian Brunsting Website:

Claudia and her grandmother, Guatemala

I met Claudia and her grandmother in San Jorge la Laguna, Guatemala. Mayan women are the country’s most disadvantaged group -- only 39% are literate -- so 16-year old Claudia was proud to share news that she completed Grade Two.

Photographer: Michele Peterson Website:

Pearls in Borneo

Markets in Sabah, Borneo are marvellous. This one materializes almost magically each evening on the pier. Pearls are one of its specialties. This shy little lass made my pearl earrings for $10 while I took her picture.

Photographer: Ursula Maxwell-Lewis Website:

Little girl with radishes, Jordan

On a visit to the Iraq Al-Amir Women's Co-Operative in Jordan, this little girl stood in the background as her peers played, her beautiful big brown eyes inviting us to buy some of her home grown radishes!

Photographer: Jenny Freedman Website:

Phenomenal Woman

Leslie and Bexie

I walk into a room
Just as cool as you please,
And to a man,
The fellows stand or
Fall down on their knees.
Then they swarm around me,
A hive of honey bees.
I say,
It's the fire in my eyes,
And the flash of my teeth,
The swing in my waist,
And the joy in my feet.
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.

(Source: Poem by Maya Angelou)
