This is a photo documentary blog about special women. Women who, one way or another, lost their husband. It tells how 'being a widow' changes their lives. It tells how different societies and cultures treat widows. I photographically collect their stories to create awareness of their plight.
Yesterday I was in Barcelona to meet the widows who, since 11 years, march the streets every month. They protest for better pensions, at least 70% of their husband's wages. It was an impressive sight to see the ladies march, behind a police escort over one of the mainroads of Barcelona. Next month I will meet them again and portrait a few of them and hear their stories. Brave women, fighting for their rights!
