From International Women’s Day: Mothers and Daughters, one of 33 photos. Niculina Fieraru, 39, with her daughter Flori Gabriela Dumitrache, 13, in their room in Gura Sutii village, Romania, on February 25, 2014. Niculina Fieraru is unemployed and has two children. She hopes that her daughter Flori Gabriela will become a seamstress. Flori Gabriela wants to become a pop singer and she hopes to go to high school in a town 23 km (14 mi) away, but her family cannot afford to pay for it. A Romanian NGO has offered a scholarship to make this possible. On March 8, activists around the globe celebrate International Women’s Day, which dates back to the beginning of the 20th century and has been observed by the United Nations since 1975. The UN writes that it is an occasion to commemorate achievements in women’s rights and to call for further change. (Reuters/Bogdan Cristel)

From China’s “Nail Grave” Relocated, one of 11 photos. A 10-meter-high tomb stands in a construction site, waiting to be relocated, in Taiyuan, north China’s Shanxi province, after the owner of this “nail grave” reached an agreement with the construction consortium and would receive 800 yuan ($128 USD) in compensation, on December 13, 2012. Government-backed land grabs have become a volatile problem as officials and developers seek to cash in on the nation’s property boom, sometimes forcing people out of their homes without proper compensation.
