Women by Steve McCurry.

Happy women’s day!

To celebrate it, here’s my small selection of amazing photos by amazing Steve McCurry. These are women from the Middle East, but couple of other places too, seen through his eyes/lenses.  Go to his blog for more photos and stories.

You’ll notice that the reoccurring theme in these photos is education – books, reading, writing, teaching, listening, playing. That is so because I believe it is the most important thing we can do, the biggest tool and the greatest power – for all women, and for all the people in the world.

Enjoy the day!
