Ikuko, the "big sister" of Tokyo's Akasaka geisha district, came to the capital to seek her fortune in 1964, the year Tokyo first hosted the Olympics. But the novel coronavirus pandemic has made her fear for her centuries-old profession as never before. Though the number of geisha - famed for their witty conversation, beauty and skill at traditional arts - has been falling for years, Ikuko and her colleagues were without work for months due to Japan's state of emergency and now operate under awkward social distancing rules. "There were more than 400 geisha in Akasaka when I came, so many I couldn't remember their names. But times changed," Ikuko, now 80, said. Only 20 remain, and there aren't enough engagements to take on new apprentices - especially now. Coronavirus-induced austerity has slashed expense accounts, and many people remain wary of spending hours in the elegant but closed traditional rooms where geisha entertain. Engagements are down 95 percent, and come with new rules: no pouring drinks for customers or touching them even to shake hands, and sitting 2 metres apart. Masks are hard to wear with their elaborate wigs, so they mostly don't. REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon SEARCH "GEISHA COVID-19" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES. TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY

"I thought it was a world you couldn't enter unless you started training in your teens", said Koiku.

"My father really didn't understand geisha, he thought it was like the sex trade. He opposed me so violently I thought it would tear the family apart", said Mayu. "After six years I just gave up and left", she added. "When he saw our first performance, and how hard we work, he came backstage and went to his knees and bowed really low ... Now he's a huge fan."

But due to the patient being ruled out for the coronavirus, we could only have five or six people in the room at a time and putting on all the gowns and gloves and masks and face shields to protect us in case the patient does have coronavirus, it takes a while, so the nurse that was in there, ended up being in the room for you know 6, 7 hours with minimal breaks and it was hard being in charge and knowing that she was stuck in the room and really nothing I could do to help her," Hamil said.

Nahla Mohamed Abdel Rahman, 37, a professor at faculty of applied arts, holds her three-month-old baby Younis, at their house in her first week back at work, in Cairo, Egypt, February 22, 2019. Nahla took only three months off work for her maternity leave. Nahla's husband Ahmed Saleh Sobhie, 39, works as an accountant at the Eye Bank. He didn't take any leave. By the Egyptian labour law, mothers can take between three and four months off in paid maternity leave, and up to two years in unpaid leave. Fathers cannot take any paternity leave.

"I always feel worried and afraid when I leave Younis, feeding and sleeping times are still too hard to control, that's why I always keep calling my sister Heba to make sure my baby is fine", she said. "I think it would be better to have longer period of time with my baby, until he is six months old. By then, he can start eating and won't rely totally on breastfeeding."

Jenny was on a maternity leave for two months and Ashish for ten days. The statutory maternity leave in Nepal is 98 days. "I fell very sad because I'm very attached to my child and it's very hard to leave him", Jenny said. "At least six months would be the fair amount of maternity leave."

Public relations account director Peiru Ng, 32, poses with her husband, finance manager Kenny Lee, 33, and their two-and-a-half year old daughter Faith and 12-week-old son Scott in her first week back at work, at their home in Singapore, February 17, 2019. Singaporean mothers are by and large entitled to 16 weeks of paid maternity leave while fathers are allowed two weeks of leave. Peiru chose to end her maternity leave after 12 weeks, four weeks earlier than she is entitled, because of a busy period at work. "Having my work is like having me time. I feel that work makes me a better mum. Of course, this is not to say that there's anything wrong with being a stay-at-home mum, but personally I like the sense of also leading a life for myself and not solely playing the role of a mother", she said, "It's better to have things more flexible and to see maternity leave in a more long-term way rather than a one-off, (and) to have a workplace more parent-friendly, allowing us to take leave as and when we need to. Kenny took five days off even though his company allows him two months. "I just take this as and when needed", he said, "I think, two weeks for dads is pathetic. One or two months would be great for the family bonding time. But practically and realistically, it's hard because it's difficult to detach from work."

The Wider Image: Cambodian shoe maker has little time for politics
Whoever wins Cambodia's general election next week, 27-year-old Khen Srey Touch knows only that she will have to keep working hard for years to come. Khen Srey Touch is among thousands of workers in the garment industry who are being courted by Prime Minister Hun Sen ahead of the July 29 election. Like many Cambodians, she has known no other leader but Hun Sen. Hun Sen, who has ruled Cambodia for more than 30 years, is trying to ensure victory after two close elections in 2013 and 2017, by handing out cash inducements and a series of punishing measures against the opposition. His government has targeted opposition politicians, civil society groups and independent media ahead of the poll, which he appears set to win easily. Hun Sen has also been a fixture at campaign rallies with garment workers - promising them more benefits and handing cash envelopes to pregnant employees.

Nueva Union doesn't have running water, a connection to the electrical grid or paved roads. But the neighbourhood has something that makes life in a Peruvian shantytown more bearable: a soccer field. Nueva Union residents, mostly migrants from poor Peruvian provinces, carved a flat clearing for playing soccer into the dusty hillside when they settled in Lima some 15 years ago. The grassless soccer field - like scores of similar makeshift pitches across the country - is a testament to Peru's love for the game as its team prepares to play in the World Cup for the first time since 1982. World Cup fever has injected fresh enthusiasm into the games played on the pitch in Nueva Union, which overlooks the capital of some 10 million people. Like the Peruvian team, Nueva Union is an underdog - home to hard-working families struggling to build a better future for themselves with scant help from authorities.

Pictures of the Year: A picture and its story
A boy moves away as a United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) helicopter lands in Rubkuai village, Unity State, northern South Sudan, February 18, 2017. Siegfried Modola: "I took this picture in the remote village of Rubkuai in South Sudan. The village is controlled by government forces. I had been in the area for several days, photographing people affected by insecurity and a food crisis days after the government and the international community declared a famine. It had been long day's work. I was trying to show the scale of the crisis and suffering. But I also wanted to capture moments of joy and playfulness to help the audience relate to the images and feel their urgency. I have never worked in a place as difficult as South Sudan. Access is extremely hard due to government restrictions, insecurity and the sheer remoteness of many locations. The village had been cut off from food supplies for months and thousands were threatened with famine. I spotted the arriving helicopter from a distance. It had come to help with a U.N. food distribution and I knew it would be swamped by children. I had my camera ready, looking for a picture of the helicopter and the village. Just then, a child ran past trying to escape the dust from the propellers. I clicked, hoping I had measured the light correctly and kept the boy in focus. I am fond of this image as it was taken unexpectedly, capturing a playful moment in an otherwise difficult situation." REUTERS/Siegfried Modola/File photo SEARCH "POY STORY" FOR THIS STORY.

Wildcat gold miner, or garimpeiro, works at a wildcat mine, also known as garimpo, at a deforested area of Amazon rainforest near Crepurizao, in the municipality of Itaituba, Para State, Brazil, August 6, 2017. Nacho Doce: "This image is meaningful to me for two reasons. The first is the deep fatigue on the face of the young man I was photographing as he turned boulders in his search for gold. The second is that while on the long assignment I fell into a ravine and twisted my ankle. The pain made walking difficult, so while taking pictures of the man I had to sit rather than stand. Working on stories about wildcat gold mining in the Amazon is dangerous. But the hardest part of the whole long assignment was staying with the story until I had what I wanted. The miners live incredibly hard lives. Just to reach them meant travelling 24 hours by bus and eight hours by van and I couldn't reveal the exact place where I was working. Illegal miners have been at work in the Amazon for generations and there is constant tension between them and the big mining companies that have legal contracts. At the end of this assignment, I was happy. The wildcat miners helped me cope with my ankle and I rode home with a pastor who told me he believed in what I was doing. The help and support of the miners while I was working was crucial. To make pictures isn't just an individual thing - it requires a team."
