PANKISI, Georgia
The Wider Image: In Georgian valley, war-scarred women battle tradition
Fending for herself after leaving a husband who kidnapped her and then losing two sons in Syria's war, Leila Achishvili has fought hard to secure her independence in fiercely patriarchal north-east Georgia. She has settled in Jokolo, a village in the Pankisi Gorge, a conservative, mainly-Muslim enclave in the majority-Christian country. She relies on the business, which she set up in 2016, to make ends meet without interference from the male family members who are the community's traditional breadwinners - and to provide a future for her surviving child. "I want to support my daughter in everything and try to send her to study abroad because there is no development for her in Pankisi," she said. The gorge is linked by mountain passes to the southern Russian region of Chechnya, and many of its inhabitants are ethnic Chechens.

Guests clap as they watch dancing at wedding party in the Chechen capital Grozny April 24, 2013. The naming of two Chechens, Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, as suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings has put Chechnya - the former site of a bloody separatist insurgency - back on the world's front pages. Moscow has poured billions of roubles into rebuilding Chechnya, a mainly Muslim province that has seen centuries of war and repression. Picture taken April 24, 2013.

Guests dance at a wedding in the Chechen capital Grozny April 24, 2013. The naming of two Chechens, Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, as suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings has put Chechnya - the former site of a bloody separatist insurgency - back on the world's front pages. Moscow has poured billions of roubles into rebuilding Chechnya, a mainly Muslim province that has seen centuries of war and repression. Picture taken April 24, 2013.

The Olympic rings are seen in front of the airport of Sochi, the host city for the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics April 22, 2013. A group leading an Islamist insurgency against Russia said on Sunday it was not at war with the United States, distancing itself from last week's Boston Marathon bombing. Insurgent violence, rooted in two separatist wars between Russian troops and Chechen separatists following the fall of the Soviet Union, occurs regularly across the North Caucasus near Sochi, where Moscow plans to hold the 2014 Winter Olympics.
