The Wider Image: Women at work around the world
Christine Akoth, 38, a metal painter, poses for a photograph in Kenya's capital Nairobi, February 27, 2017. "I have experienced gender bias at my work where sometimes I'm denied contracts because of who I am and maybe my marital status. Some female colleagues have been treated unfairly because of their sex and even exploited," Akoth said. REUTERS/Thomas Mukoya SEARCH "WOMEN WORK" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.

Devotees offer prayers at the statue of Lord Buddha during a month-long Swasthani Brata Katha festival in Bhaktapur, Nepal, January 27, 2016. During the month long festival, devotees recite one chapter of a Hindu tale daily from the 31-chapter sacred Swasthani Brata Katha book that is dedicated to God Madhavnarayan and Goddess Swasthani, alongside various other gods and goddess and the miraculous feats performed by them. The devotees also go on pilgrimages to various temples, perform religious rituals, take a holy bath in the rivers and fast for a month, especially among women who believe fasting helps in their family's well-being or in getting them a good husband.

A Reference 7121/1 yellow gold woman's wrist watch is displayed at the exhibition stand of Swiss watch manufacturer Patek Philippe at the Baselworld fair in Basel March 27, 2014. The bulk of the $50-billion Swiss watch market has for years been aimed at wealthy men drawn to high-tech, gadget-loaded timepieces they can wear as status symbols. But, faced with only single digit growth prospects, top brands are looking to the other 50 percent of the population for inspiration. A trend for bulkier watches, and a boom in jewellery sales have lifted levels of interest, which has also been driven by a growing middle-class female customer base in China. Currently, only about a third of Patek's watches end up on women's wrists, but Stern the company wants to increase that share to 40 percent.

A bride waits to participate in a staged mass wedding, organised as part of a matchmaking event to inspire singles to get married, in a suburban area of Shanghai May 18, 2013. As couples celebrate the "Qixi" festival on Tuesday, the Chinese equivalent of Valentine's Day, millions of women face stark choices in a society where traditional ideas about matrimonial hierarchy run up against huge economic and social changes sweeping the world's most populous country. There are plenty of men to go round among China's nearly 1.4 billion people but social status can conspire against single professional women, sometimes making it difficult to find a partner.

Women in uniform chat at a community park in Nanjie village of Luohe city
Women in uniform chat at a community park in Nanjie village of Luohe city in China's central Henan province September 24, 2012. Nanjie village, with more than 3,100 residents, is touted to be one of the remaining models of communist China, where the principles of morality and collectivism of the late Chairman Mao still strictly guide the people's daily lives. Aside from free housing, healthcare, food rations and education, locals working in the village's factories receive an average salary of 2500 yuan, about 400 dollars. The village's return to communism came at the same time as the rest of the country opened up to the capitalist market in the mid 1980s. Mao is still highly revered in Nanjie, enjoying a god-like status. Picture taken September 24, 2012. REUTERS/Jason Lee (CHINA - Tags: POLITICS SOCIETY)
