“The Burma Series: Breaking Walls/Breaking Patterns shines a light on the plight of the Rohingya women of Burma, bringing attention to a group of people who are being systematically persecuted. People, perceptions, and this pattern of female persecution and punishment must change. How can each of us ensure women’s safety and freedom of speech and religion?” (Background photo: Bagan, Burma)
