A mother in Tamil Nadu, India, plays with her children while helping to sort the day’s catch. While women are not typically found on the boats, they are heavily involved in much of the work that needs to be done before the boats leave and once they return. Many of these roles are undervalued or unpaid, leading to disparities in income, and often in women being entrenched in poverty. On assignment for @sea_legacy with @jennygnichols and @radharangarajan. #India #fish #fishing #community #women #work
