No. 1: The Vote and Waiting: We, in the democratic West, are easily prone to take for granted our right to vote and indeed many people cannot be bothered to do so. It is easy to forget that for many people it is a recently acquired privilege and indeed is yet to be the right of many others.
No. 2: Going for Firewood: Women in many parts of Africa not only have to forage for firewood as part of their basic survival but risk violent attacks from soldiers or rogue gangs in the process.
No. 3: The Disappeared: In 1998 a group of Chilean nationals hammered crosses into the grass in front of the Houses of Parliament, each one representing someone who had 'disappeared' during the repressive years of the Pinochet regime. I found a moving newspaper image of one of the women participating in this quiet act of grievance and demonstration. I asked my daughter to model the same pose and was shocked by the emotion that this evoked in me. I was not prepared for such a simple act to engender such empathy.
