A domestic abuse victim who since the end of April has been living in Rome's 'Lucha y Siesta' (Fight and Rest) women's house, a building run solely by activists to look after women suffering from domestic violence in the city, sleeps on the sofa, in Rome, Italy, July 8, 2020. ?Maybe I loved too much and this love was never returned to me. When I saw Lucha?s door for the first time, it was like seeing paradise after dying? said the woman. 'Lucha y Siesta' has been a crucial lifeline for women suffering from domestic violence and abuse in the city for 12 years, helping and supporting over 1,200 women and around 400 children. The previously abandoned building was occupied and transformed by women's rights activists in 2008, who also use to the space to hold workshops and training for all ages on how to fight gender violence. It is now under threat and risk of closure as owners of the building, the city's heavily indebted public transport company ATAC, plan to sell it for around 2.6 million euros to claw back some much needed finances. During lockdown, 'Lucha y Siesta' had a 30 percent increase in requests for help, and had to come up with alternative ways to accommodate the emergency situation after local authorities threatened to cut electricity and water in the building in an effort to push the women out. Volunteers warn losing the beds available will restrict critical help for vulnerable women in the Italian capital. The entire city of Rome has only 39 beds available for women escaping violence and Lucha y Siesta makes up 14 of those. Three women arrived at Lucha during lockdown. Picture taken July 8, 2020.

X-Raid's driver Orlando Terranova and co-driver Bernardo Graue drive over a sand dune during Stage 2 from Pisco to San Juan de Marcona at the 2019 Peru Dakar Rally, in Pisco, Peru, January 8, 2019. Reuters Photographer Carlos Jasso: "The Dakar Rally is a race like no other, a two-week long endurance challenge across Peru in some of the harshest terrain and conditions on Earth. The event spanned thousands of kilometres with motorcycles, cars and trucks racing across vast deserts and towering dunes, from the Andes to the shores of the Pacific Ocean. As a photographer, I had good access with the helicopter. I wore a harness attached to the helicopter, with the door open in order to shoot. I like the abstract images best -- the detail created by a motorcycle accelerating, the sand thrown up and combined with beautiful light so that it looks almost like a wave. You must have the camera exposures pre-set to be ready for the action, but the light is constantly shifting as clouds move across the sky. You point the camera and expose for the highlights and hope the vehicle comes into the frame and drives between the shadows of the clouds. You start reading the dunes ahead of reaching them. 'Now itÕs beautiful golden light, IÕm going to shoot a landscape.' Or 'Now there are great shadows, IÕm going to play with that.' Everything can change so quickly. Every choice you make is a gamble - the exposure you set, the dune you choose to climb." REUTERS/Carlos Jasso/File Photo SEARCH "POY STORIES 2019" FOR THIS STORY.

Reuters Photographer Carlos Barria: "During the G7 meeting in France the leaders, with their spouses, gathered for the traditional family photo. As a member of the White House press pool, I travelled with President Trump to document his every move. I focused my lens on President Trump, while also keeping an eye on the First Lady. ItÕs a fast photo opportunity so I was filing directly from my camera Ð sending pictures instantaneously, like live TV. As I was focused on Trump, I could see in the corner of my frame that Melania Trump had a spontaneous and fleeting interaction with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. It happened so quickly it was almost imperceptible. I stopped and looked at my camera screen and thatÕs when I saw it. I sent it to the editor, who also saw its potential and sent it out quickly.Minutes after the event ended, people were already retweeting the image and creating memes. It underscores how even in a crowd of photographers focused on the same subjects, there are opportunities to capture something unique, and potentially viral."

Brutalism, an architectural style popular in the 1950s and 1960s, based on crude, block-like forms cast from concrete was popular throughout the eastern bloc. After World War Two socialist Yugoslavia led by Josip Broz Tito set out to reconstruct a land destroyed by fighting. Residential blocks, hotels, civic centres and monuments all made of concrete shot up across the country. The architecture was supposed to show the power of a state between two worlds - Western democracy and the communist East, looking to forge its own path and create a socialist utopia.

Three years and four months after British voters shocked the world by deciding to become the first country to leave the EU, the nation remains divided on how, or even whether, to do it. Prime Minister Boris Johnson once said he would rather be "dead in a ditch" than ask for a delay to the Oct. 31 Brexit deadline, which is already the third such cut-off date. But now it looks like he will need more time. For many voters on Streatham High Road, which people in the South London neighbourhood claim is Europe's longest high street, leaving the EU is just as worrying a prospect as it was when the referendum was held in June 2016. Much of the area lies within the borough of Lambeth where nearly four in five voters backed staying in the bloc, the strongest pro-Remain vote in Britain which reflected Streatham's diverse, multi-cultural population.

Japan may have been seen as a leftfield choice to host the Rugby World Cup but if you want a sense of the country's long love affair with the game, you could do worse than to get along to Tokyo's Fuwaku club. The dozens of players running, passing, mauling, scrummaging and crashing into one another in the shadow of the Aquatics Centre being built for the 2020 Olympics are unremarkable in all but one thing - their age. Fuwaku, founded in 1948, is one of approximately 150 Japanese clubs that stage competitive, full-contact matches for players over the age of 40 and the oldest man on the park is sprightly 86-year-old lock Ryuichi Nagayama. As in rugby clubs around the world, the attraction is only partly the love of playing the game which originated in an English private school and can look to the uninitiated like legalised brutality.

The Wider Image: Beaten and abused, Sudan's women bear scars of fight for freedom
Amel Tajeldin, 41, a housewife and mother of four, poses for a photograph in Khartoum, Sudan, June 26, 2019. Tajeldin said she would take turns with her husband to watch the children so that she could go out and protest. "While it was his turn to look after the children, I took part in the demonstrations," she said. She used to teach songs to street children in a makeshift tent at the sit-in. On June 3, members of the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces shouted at her and other protesters and told them to run, she said. "We ran. We were surrounded by soldiers and policemen," she said. Both her arms are now wrapped in bandages. "While we were running, they beat us. To protect my head, I used my hands. This is why my two arms are broken," she said. "The ones like us beaten by police were lucky, the ones beaten by RSF members were brutally injured." REUTERS/Umit Bektas SEARCH "SUDAN WOMEN" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

Alex (C), drag name Alexandria Van Cartier, 26, a real-life drag queen and mentor of Keegan, who identifies as gender creative, takes one final look before taking the stage during the International Drag Festival 2018 near Austin, Texas, U.S., November 16, 2018. Alex, says he tries to impress upon Keegan a sense of feeling comfortable in his own skin. He says the process of getting into drag is time consuming and is very reflective. "Part of what drag has done, for me at least, it's like if you're not enjoying what you're seeing in the mirror, than there is something wrong. And if I'm going to have to look at myself in the mirror for three hours, I better like what I'm seeing." REUTERS/Amanda Voisard SEARCH "GENDER CREATIVE" FOR THIS STORY.
