Egilda Orrico, an activist, sits in the window of '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, in Rome, Italy, July 8, 2020. "This place changed my life. This house chose me, then I chose it" said the activist. '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.

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, opens a window in her room, in Rome, Italy, July 8, 2020. "I escaped from my home and an anti-violence centre put me in a hotel for 3 weeks. I didn't leave the room and I had a lot of panic attacks. I felt so lonely, even though my son was with me. When I arrived at Lucha I felt for the first time that I was not alone. After a short time here, the panic attacks were over," said the woman.

Reveller sleeps on pavement during Sanja Matsuri festival in Tokyo
A reveller sleeps on the pavement during the Sanja Matsuri festival in the Asakusa district of Tokyo May 17, 2015. The Sanja Matsuri festival attracts over about one million visitors over its duration of three days, when parties of revellers carry portable shrines through the Asakusa neighbourhood, rocking and shaking them in a belief that this intensified the powers of the deities that reside inside them.

Yangon lost its status as Myanmar's capital in 2005, after the former military junta carved a new seat of government from a parched wilderness some 380 km (236 miles) to the north and called it Naypyitaw ("Abode of Kings"). This week, Naypyitaw will have its coming out party as world leaders, including United States President Barack Obama, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang, attend meetings organised around a summit of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

A man sleeps on a chair as others wait outside a hospital in Shanghai
A man sleeps on a chair as others wait outside a hospital in Shanghai, September 1, 2014. As China tries to privatize an overburdened public healthcare system, private hospitals face a shortage ... of doctors. The bottleneck - the result of resistance from both public hospitals and doctors themselves - could dent a drive to reform China's hospital sector, just as investors flock to a healthcare delivery market that's set to more than double to $600 billion by the end of the decade, according to consultancy Bain & Co. Part of the problem is that doctors across most of China need permission from the state-owned hospitals where they practice before they can also work in the private sector. And many public hospitals don't want to let their best doctors go. Picture taken September 1, 2014. REUTERS/Aly Song (CHINA - Tags: BUSINESS POLITICS HEALTH SOCIETY)

A woman dozes next to her spice stand at the San Juan food market in Mexico City May 14, 2014. An ancient megalopolis built in a drained lake rimmed by mountains, Mexico City consistently flies under the radar. Despite lacking the samba-steeped allure of Rio de Janeiro or the chic intellectualism of Buenos Aires, Mexico City also feels like a city on the up, benefiting from more than a decade of progressive city administrations who cleaned up the atmosphere, legalized gay marriage, introduced a successful bike-sharing scheme and spruced up the austere historic center. From high-end molecular gastronomy to endless street stalls selling insect-stuffed quesadillas, you're never likely to go hungry in Mexico City. Picture taken May 14, 2014.
