A Picture and its Story: The despair of a Rio widow, in a city struggling with violence
For Ricardo Moraes, a veteran photographer who for 11 years has documented for Reuters life in Rio de Janeiro's often dangerous cinderblock slums known as "favelas", work began at about 6 a.m. on Thursday, when he heard a radio report of a hostage situation in Sao Carlos, a sprawling tangle of hillside homes near the city center. The images he would capture - a young woman, kneeling over her husband's body, overcome with grief and surrounded by heavily armed police - ultimately would appear on the front pages of Brazil's two largest newspapers. They resonated in a city fed up with violence, where residents say shootouts among aggressive criminal gangs and a notoriously deadly police force are common. The incident culminating in the photographs began when a man who police later identified as a drug trafficker took a family of three hostage in an apartment building. He surrendered but hours later police exchanged gunfire with other suspects near the lobby, and the fighting quickly spilled into the surrounding area. Then another family was taken hostage in a house nearby, by another heavily armed group. As negotiations with police ensued, female relatives of the drug gang gathered nearby. Hours later, the hostage-takers surrendered and exited the second building. But one of them was missing. Behind the police, the women edged closer to the home. Sprawled on a staircase was a dead body. That is when the subject of Moraes' photograph broke into tears. Surrounded by police dressed in military-style gear, the images show the young woman collapsing in despair as she recognizes the body. Another woman comforts her. When Moraes visited the local morgue on Friday morning, he saw the woman again, distraught and surrounded by family. She agreed to talk. In a brief interview, the woman, who identified herself only as Juliana, said she was the wife of the slain man, who she named as Davi Barboza. She said she was four months pregnant with his child. She acknowledged he was a crimi

Shems Osman, 32, employee at an international company, poses for a photograph in Khartoum, Sudan, June 29, 2019. Osman studied psychology in Canada. She has Canadian citizenship but she chose to return to Sudan. "In Sudan it is definitely different how women carry themselves and how they are treated, and I think this is because of our African culture more than our Arab culture. Sudanese women are just naturally strong. So, they are naturally on the frontline and they are naturally a part of revolution," she said. "I left Sudan when I was really young. When I came back, I noticed the difference between living in Sudan and living outside of Sudan. I want to change that for my country. I won't be comfortable more than I am comfortable in my own land. Anything I did outside of Sudan, wouldn't make a difference, but if I do it here, it might. I wasn't happy with the situation in Sudan and I was waiting for this revolution for a long time. I was overjoyed and overwhelmed when I heard about the first demonstrations in Khartoum late November 2018. I just couldn't wait to be a part of it. There is always fear but I think our will to change Sudan is stronger than our sense of fear. Our brothers and sisters were killed. If we go back now it is almost a shame on us. We have to continue what they started. Their death should not go in vain. We owe them that." REUTERS/Umit Bektas SEARCH "SUDAN WOMEN" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

Pictures of the Year: A picture and its story
Relatives of inmates held at the General Command of the Carabobo Police react as they wait outside the prison, where a fire occurred in the cells area, according to local media, in Valencia, Venezuela March 28, 2018. Reuters photographer Carlos Garcia Rawlins: "When we heard that riots and a fire had broken out in the cells of a detention centre in Valencia, we knew that it was a possible catastrophe as many prisons in the country are overcrowded. There were rumours of dozens of deaths and there was a desperate atmosphere as a crowd of several hundred people waited for news of their loved ones. Earlier in the day there had been clashes and the police had used teargas to disperse the families. Police officers were trying to update people, but no official statements had been made, and as people heard news of their relatives in the detention centre, a reaction would spread through the crowd. People were crying, fainting and shouting throughout the street. I was standing on the other side of the street when I heard a woman's scream pierce the air. I rushed through the crowd and saw this woman. She was overwhelmed by grief and people cleared a space around her and tried to comfort her. This was a really difficult moment to photograph because her pain was so intense, I don't think she even really noticed I was there. Authorities subsequently said that 68 people died in the fire, including two women who were visiting inmates. I spent the following day documenting the funerals of some of those who had died."

The Wider Image: Wings of joy: Kabul's bird market
For some Afghans weighed down by decades of war and struggle, a little comfort and distraction can be found in the company of birds. The war seems a long way off in the Ka Faroshi bird market in the heart of Kabul's old city, a narrow lane with a few alleys off it, packed with small, mud-walled shops festooned with bird cages. Customers, most of them men, but some blue burqa-clad women too, squeeze down the crowded street, stopping to inspect birds on display, haggle with shopkeepers and buy bird seed and other supplies. Fighting cocks and partridges squawk in bell-shaped wicker cages, while finches, larks and canaries of all varieties hop about in cages, and pigeons coo in small aviaries made of wire. "In Afghanistan, it's a passion to keep birds," said Rafiullhah Ahmadi, who sells fighting cocks at the market. "Some people love to keep fighting cocks, some love to have partridges and some love to have other kinds of birds. It's a custom in Afghanistan." Most of the birds come from Afghanistan, caught in the wild or raised. Some are imported from neighbouring countries, such as Iran and Pakistan, but traders said business was down, with few birds being imported these days.

Pictures of the Year: A picture and its story
Displaced Iraqi women who just fled their home, rest in the desert as they wait to be transported while Iraqi forces battle with Islamic State militants in western Mosul, Iraq, February 27, 2017. Zohra Bensemra: "I took this picture in a desert on the outskirts of Western Mosul of 90-year-old Khatla Ali Abdallah after she fled the battle for Mosul. Her fearful eyes red with fatigue, Khatla was so exhausted she could not stand or even sit properly. She looked to me like she had not eaten or drank water for a long time. The moment was so emotional that I had tears in my eyes when I photographed Khatla. I felt bad because I could not do anything for her apart from taking pictures to show the world the agony and torment of people trying to flee Mosul to safety. I was sad too, imagining this woman as my own grandmother and feeling helpless to make her comfortable. When you face such a moment, you always think that it could happen to anyone of us. But despite all, Khatla looked beautiful to me, almost as if every wrinkle on her face told a story. I was fortunate to find her a few days later in a refugee camp after showing people my photograph of her. She has survived decades of turbulence in northern Iraq. She told me "the fighting there is the worst I have ever seen". She had been carried across the desert by her grandsons, under sniper and mortar fire, one of thousands who braved the difficult and dangerous journey out of Islamic State's shrinking stronghold in western Mosul. Khatla made me smile when she expressed her remorse about her 20 chickens she had to leave behind. She had looked after them even while hiding from crossfire in her house's basement. Despite all the terror she experienced under IS rule, it had not destroyed her humanity - she said, 'Even animals deserve life.'" REUTERS/Zohra Bensemra/File Photo SEARCH "POY STORY" FOR THIS STORY.

Displaced Iraqi women who just fled their home, rest in the desert as they wait to be transported while Iraqi forces battle with Islamic State militants in western Mosul, Iraq, February 27, 2017. Zohra Bensemra: "I took this picture in a desert on the outskirts of Western Mosul of 90-year-old Khatla Ali Abdallah after she fled the battle for Mosul. Her fearful eyes red with fatigue, Khatla was so exhausted she could not stand or even sit properly. She looked to me like she had not eaten or drank water for a long time. The moment was so emotional that I had tears in my eyes when I photographed Khatla. I felt bad because I could not do anything for her apart from taking pictures to show the world the agony and torment of people trying to flee Mosul to safety. I was sad too, imagining this woman as my own grandmother and feeling helpless to make her comfortable. When you face such a moment, you always think that it could happen to anyone of us. But despite all, Khatla looked beautiful to me, almost as if every wrinkle on her face told a story. I was fortunate to find her a few days later in a refugee camp after showing people my photograph of her. She has survived decades of turbulence in northern Iraq. She told me "the fighting there is the worst I have ever seen". She had been carried across the desert by her grandsons, under sniper and mortar fire, one of thousands who braved the difficult and dangerous journey out of Islamic State's shrinking stronghold in western Mosul. Khatla made me smile when she expressed her remorse about her 20 chickens she had to leave behind. She had looked after them even while hiding from crossfire in her house's basement. Despite all the terror she experienced under IS rule, it had not destroyed her humanity - she said, 'Even animals deserve life.'" REUTERS/Zohra Bensemra/File Photo SEARCH "POY IS" FOR THIS STORY.

Pictures of the Year: The battle against Islamic State
A woman injured in a mortar attack is treated by medics in a field clinic as Iraqi forces battle with Islamic State militants, in western Mosul, Iraq, March 2, 2017. Zohra Bensemra: "The Reuters team was waiting at an Iraqi special forces checkpoint on the outskirts of western Mosul for permission toÊgo to their command base to cover the frontline. It was a field clinic run by foreign volunteers. It seemed calm. It was still early. We were talking to one of the foreign medics when suddenly a special forces Humvee came at speed towards the checkpoint. It was four injured civilians - two women, a man and a boy. They seemed in shock. The woman could not answer my questions. She seemed lost in thought. I smiled to comfort her and help her understand she was safe. A soldier told us they were hit by mortar fire as they fled fighting between Iraqi forces and Islamic State fighters." REUTERS/Zohra Bensemra/File Photo SEARCH "POY IS" FOR THIS STORY.

The Wider Image: Prisoners care for abused animals at former jail
Kristina Hazelett had cats, birds and hamsters while growing up but she never knew much about dogs until she started serving a jail sentence for drug possession. The 35-year-old inmate is part of a team of women prisoners in Phoenix, Arizona who work with the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office Animal Safety Unit (MASH) in a program that comforts and trains mistreated and neglected animals rescued from deplorable conditions. Six days a week the women are transported to the animal shelter in a former men's jail where rows of cells, some adorned with dog portraits and animal murals, have been renamed Bow Wow Way, Purr Lane, 2nd Chance and Ruff Road. "Along the way, we provide the rehabilitation for not just the animals but for the inmates as well," William Sibole, a detention officer with the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, told Reuters.

"Housewives are more comfortable to have a woman plumber in their house in the absence of their husbands," said Sheikh. "To tackle gender inequality, I think that all operating sectors must provide equal opportunities for men and women in all fields and each woman must believe in her capabilities and skills that she has in order to convince the others."
