A Day In The Life Of An Azerbaijani Mother

The question of how women balance work and child care is a topic of intense debate worldwide. In honor of International Women's Day on March 8, we look at the lives of working mothers in Azerbaijan, Pakistan, Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, Montenegro, Iraq, Ukraine, Tatarstan, and the Czech Republic. In this gallery, we spend a day with Roya Rafiyeva, a journalist living in Baku, and her family.
