Women, East Africa, 1941.
Some looked away from the camera, like the Sudanese women in the header photo. (They’re bare-breasted; to be family-friendly I give you only their heads.)
Some happily faced it.
Others hid and peaked from behind a door curtain.
The photos are from my father’s album, brought back after serving in the Middle East in 1941/42.
It was Ailsa’s idea to find photos reflecting women’s interests for International Women’s Day. Please look at her post, too.
