Salt

Indian salt worker Walbai Ayyubbhai, 70, carries a rake at a salt pan on the eve of International Women's Day in the Santalpur region of Little Rann of Kutch, some 240 kilometres from Ahmedabad on March 7. Women have always faced higher unemployment rates than men, and the sluggish global economy in recent years has only made the situation worse, the International Labour Organization said in December.
