Being a woman in Burkina Faso is complicated, and much more if you live in a rural context. This work portrays the daily life of the women of Burkina Faso, in moments of work and in the few moments of leisure. The activities begins early in the morning, around 4 am, when women wake up to grind the millet, which is the food staple of the village. Women, as well as girls, are involved in many daily activities relating to: nutrition, water supply, childcare (on average, every woman has seven children), working in the fields and care of animals. Moreover, in many cases, they suffer from discrimination and are the object of domestic violence.
