Power of Women

Igbedor village, located on an island in the middle of the Niger river, Nigeria. The small island is exactly on the border of two different states and no one wants to have the jurisdiction on it. Basically, it's no man's land. Right there, I met this young mother returning from the crops with a heavy load of African Yam tubers and holding her child with one arm.
