Headdresses of Gao - 08 Mar 2013
Photographer Joe Penney photographed women in traditional headdresses. Radical Islamist group MUJAO placed limitations on these headdresses during their nine-month reign in Gao, which ended in January with the arrival of French and Malian troops. The headdresses, made of beads, gemstones, fabric and fake hair and traditionally worn by elites for special occasions, were criticised by MUJAO who said they were not Islamic enough. Issues surrounding the treatment of women are receiving special attention on March 8, which marks International Women’s Day.
