The strong women of Yunnan (1)- A hard days work..

A hard day’s work has never killed anyone they say. Especially those who haven’t tried. That is not true for the women of the Hani ethnic minority in Yunnan. It might be true of the men, though. The Hani’s are a matriarchal society- that means that the women rule, manage business and money-matters, but it also seems to mean that all the work fall on their shoulders whether it be farming or construction work. This week we’ll meet a few of these amazing women.

  1. Hei Linn …. Hyggelig at du fant bloggen min. Jeg har ennå ikke helt kommet ut av “Kinatåka”. Masser av bilder og inntrykk som skal bearbeides samtidig som hverdagen krever sitt.

    Et sterkt bilde fra Yunnan. Skulle virkelig ønske at jeg hadde vært med på den turen. Komme til steder der ingen har sett hvite eller lyshårete :o) Får nøye meg med å nyte bildene til dere som deler turen med oss andre.

    Irene
