A typical day in the life of a woman in rural Senegal
The Women
The women in Senegal are generally very elegant. They tend to be very tall and slim. They wear very colourful clothes - usually long loose dresses and a kind of turban on their heads. 

The life of the women in the rural villages is very hard. In a typical day they will get up early in the morning - before their husbands. They will carry their babies and young children with them on their backs wherever they go.
