The Wider Image: In Gaza, women walk thin line between hope and despair
Palestinian Sahar Yaghi (L), 28, prepares to serve cake during a wedding party at a hotel in Gaza City, December 2, 2018. Yaghi took up work as a wedding planner soon after dropping out of university to earn income for her family. Party-planning requires her to stay up late at night. She said she sometimes hears some of her neighbours, who view her work as inappropriate, making comments about her. "I hate some comments. But I love my job and hope to have my own business," Yaghi said, adding she wants to become the "first female party planner" in Gaza. REUTERS/Samar Abo Elouf SEARCH "ELOUF WOMEN" FOR THIS STORY.
