These Stunning Photos Pay Tribute To Women Whose Voices Need To Be Heard

Stephanie Hunt

I grew up surrounded and supported by strong, intelligent and compassionate women. They encouraged me to think for myself and to voice my opinion. And to speak up for those who need to be heard.

I've been lucky enough to travel to some incredible places and meet many incredible women along the way... in places like Ethiopia, Mauritania, Myanmar, Sri Lanka and Syria. Many struggle for a voice and the rights they deserve. It's a world far from what many of us know. Yet they continue to inspire and fight on for their daughters and for women of the future.

This photo collection is in honour of their fight.
