The Wider Image: Women at work around the world
Yanis Reina, 30, a gas station attendant, poses for a photograph at a gas station in Caracas, Venezuela February 24, 2017. "No doubt this is a job initially intended for men, because you have to be standing on the street all your shift, it is dirty, greasy and there is always a strong gasoline smell. I have to adapt the pants of my uniform because they are men's and make me look weird but I adore my work. My clients are like my relatives, they come here everyday and we chat a couple of minutes while the tank is being filled. They come every day because they feel safer to be served by a woman," Reina said. "With the difficult situation that we have in Venezuela, having a job that covers your expenses is almost a luxury, but beyond that, I'm very proud of my job. I believe that now we, the women, have to be the warriors," Reina said. REUTERS/Carlos Garcia Rawlins SEARCH "WOMEN WORK" FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH "WIDER IMAGE" FOR ALL STORIES.
