she works hard for her money

I took this photo in a quaint rural fishing community called Chicuque.

Whilst traveling with my dad to South Africa a week ago we came across a group of women carrying wood similar to the picture above. I quietly commented, ” Wow, those women are strong!”  In response my dad said in a matter of fact voice; “Of course, women are stronger than men!”

If you ask most women why they work so hard, its almost always the same answer, ” for my children.”

after the fabric has been made, these ladies spend much of the day making different items such as bags or dolls from it.

Now, if you are a man reading this post and dont agree with what my father said, you could always find another man who holds similar views to my dad and battle it out 😀
