Mary F. Calvert: The War Within


We used to call this type of work “women’s Issues.” I prefer to think of them as our issues. You cannot marginalize half the world’s population without it being a problem for all of us. The only difference between “us” and “them” is that they were born there and we were born here. I became a photojournalist so I could tell the stories of those with no voice and to provide a mirror for society to examine itself. Everyone should know what is going on in his or her world and it is my job to make them care.
