The Wider Image: Polarizing Brazil election forces women off the fence
In Brazil's most polarizing election in decades, women have long held the decisive swing vote, with a quarter of the female electorate up for grabs just a month ago - twice the undecided rate among Brazilian men. Days ahead of Sunday's deciding vote, however, right-wing front-runner Jair Bolsonaro has pushed them off the fence, splitting Brazilian women along deep fault lines. On one side, he has won the backing of women fed up with crime, corruption scandals and economic recession under the leftist Workers Party, represented by his rival Fernando Haddad. On the other, women say they cannot bring themselves to vote for a man with a track record of offending minorities and women, including telling a fellow lawmaker she was too ugly to rape and defending the gender pay gap. The latest survey from pollster Ibope shows a close divide, with 44 percent of women supporting Bolsonaro and 40 percent for Haddad. Men have broken overwhelmingly for Bolsonaro, who has the support of 56 percent, against just 36 percent for Haddad. The largest demonstrations against Bolsonaro in recent months have been led by women, gathering tens of thousands of protesters under the slogan "ele nao" or "not him." Yet their campaign on social media and in the streets of major cities spurred a backlash from Bolsonaro supporters declaring "ele sim" or "yes, him."

The Wider Image: Venezuelan migrants pose humanitarian problem in Brazil
Countries across Latin America and beyond have received a growing number of Venezuelans fleeing economic hardship, crime and what critics call an increasingly authoritarian government. The once-prosperous country, home to the world's largest proven oil reserves, is struggling with a profound recession, widespread unemployment, chronic shortages and inflation that the opposition-led Congress said could soon top 2,000 percent. As conditions there worsen, nearby cities like Brazilian city of Boa Vista are struggling with one of the biggest migrations in recent Latin American history. With limited infrastructure, social services and jobs to offer migrants, Brazilian authorities fear a full-fledged humanitarian crisis. In Roraima, the rural state of which Boa Vista is the capital, the governor last week decreed a "social emergency," putting local services on alert for mounting health and security demands. Not even Venezuela's government knows for certain how many of its 30 million people have fled in recent years. Some sociologists have estimated the number to be as high as 2 million, although President Nicolas Maduro's leftist government disputes that figure. Some migrants in Boa Vista are finding ways to get by, finding cheap accommodation or lodging in the few shelters, like a local gym, that authorities have provided. Others wander homeless, some turning to crime, like prostitution, adding law enforcement woes to the social challenges. REUTERS/Nacho Doce SEARCH "VENEZUELAN MIGRANTS" FOR THIS STORY.

Pictures of the Year: Venezuela crisis
Even by the volatile and violent standards of recent times in Venezuela, 2017 was an exceptional year, a "perfect storm" of political and economic crisis. Going into a fourth year of crippling recession, Venezuela's 30 million people found themselves skipping meals, suffering shortages of basic foods and medicines, jostling in lines for ever-scarcer subsidized goods, unable to keep up with dizzying inflation rates, and emigrating in ever larger numbers. In unprecedented scenes for the once-prosperous OPEC nation, some citizens survived only by scavenging through garbage. Not surprisingly in that context, President Nicolas Maduro's ruling Socialists - the inheritors of Hugo Chavez's "21st century revolution" - lost popularity on the street, and the opposition coalition sensed a chance to unseat them. The tipping point came in March when the pro-Maduro Supreme Court essentially took over functions of the opposition-led National Assembly. Though the controversial ruling was later modified, it was a trigger and rallying cry for the opposition, which began a campaign of street protests that ran from April to July.

"The Whale", "The Dog" or "The Zebra"? Players line up beside a small kiosk in a poor neighbourhood to choose animals in a lottery game that has become a craze in Venezuela even as the oil-rich country suffers a fourth year of brutal recession. It seems more and more Venezuelans are turning to gambling in their desperation to make ends meet amid the country's unprecedented economic crisis. Though more people lose than win overall, the illusion of a payday has become more alluring as Venezuelans endure the world's highest inflation, shortages of basics from flour to car batteries, and diminished real-term wages.

Venezuela's socialist government decreed an "economic emergency" on Friday that will expand its powers and published the first data in a year that shows the depth of a recession fueled by low oil prices and a sputtering state-led model. The central bank, which has been lambasted by critics of President Nicolas Maduro's government for hiding statistics since the end of 2014, said the South American OPEC nation's economy shrank 4.5 percent in the first nine months last year. Inflation soared in that period to an annual rate of 141.5 percent, the world's worst. REUTERS/Carlos Garcia Rawlins

A view of containers at a port in Jaragua do Sul, Santa Catarina state, Brazil, October 22, 2015. To hear Brazil's government tell it, businesses like Jamo Equipamentos should be booming. With Brazil locked in its worst recession in three decades, the maker of heating equipment, like other exporters, should at least be enjoying a newfound competitive advantage: the plunge in the currency, which has lost a third of its value against the dollar this year. A weaker Brazilian real makes Jamo's products cheaper inChina, India and other foreign markets and Brazil's government hopes it and other manufacturing companies will take advantage and drive an export-led economic recovery.

A weaker Brazilian real makes Jamo's products cheaper in China, India and other foreign markets. Brazil's government hopes the company and other manufacturers will take advantage and drive an export-led economic recovery. But a host of factors still hold exporters back, from a depreciation of currencies in many buyer markets to a reliance on imported raw materials to a global trade slump.

ATTENTION EDITORS: SPANISH LAW REQUIRES THAT THE FACES OF MINORS ARE MASKED IN PUBLICATIONS WITHIN SPAIN Spanish childhood educator Eva Molina, 37, (R) and children play at a square while attending a programme that gives children academic and psychological help to improve their chances in life, outside a Catholic charity Caritas centre in the neighborhood of Puente Tocinos, near Murcia, southeast Spain, November 3, 2015. Spain is facing rising levels of child poverty as its economic recovery fails to bridge a growing gulf between rich and poor, storing up problems for an already-strained social security system. While the country has emerged from recession and become one of the fastest-growing economies in Europe, more than one in three children - or 2.6 million - are at risk of poverty or social exclusion, according to latest EU figures.
