Magnum photographers Cristina Garcia Rodero, Bieke Depoorter, Newsha Tavakolian and Olivia Arthur, visited Oxfam projects in communities in Armenia, Chad, Wales and Sri Lanka. These photographers highlight the work Oxfam are engaging in across the globe to help women fight discrimination – and the poverty it causes.

The women they met and photographed for Women Unlimited represent progress and hope. They are actively taking charge of their lives not only to ensure the survival of their families but to lead the way for future generations.
