A Day In The Life Of A Tajik Mother

Published 6 March 2013


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 Shahnoz Komilzoda, a businesswoman, wife, and mother of two children in Dushanbe, Tajikistan.
