Girl in Khudi, by Jayne Lee

Location: Lamjung, Nepal

My second goal in Nepal was to study women's rights. Women are second citizens in Nepal and work longer hours than men, performing a wide range of domestic tasks. This is a portrait of a Nepali girl portering a load of potatoes and holding her sandals in hand, as she crosses a stream towards the village of Khudi.
