During my tripIn 2019, I met this women at a hostel in Bagan, Myanmar. She tearfully shared her story of being forced to quit her beloved job in childcare and coerced into running the hostel. Many women are also seen working at construction sites. Inspired by the hidden reality of hardship and inequality behind the beauty and strength of working women, I selected this photograp to shed light on the constraints on their freedom and the unequal realities they face.
