    This is a photo of Haddy and Awa, two Gambian models. This photo represents the strength of women as family, sisters in the world. They nurture one another and unite to overcome social inequality and injustices. Awa says women in fashion modeling challenge male dominance because it is the an industry where they get paid more than men, have opportunities for business and have greater influence. She says modelling inspires her to show the world what she can do with her potential as a woman.
