I took the picture of this woman in a Rohingya refugee camp in Southern Bangladesh.

More than 730,000 Rohingya have been driven into Bangladesh (as of January 2019). Over half of them are women.

The Rohingya refugees in southern Bangladesh brought with them horrifying accounts of what had triggered their chaotic flight from Myanmar. Tales of savage violence and cruelty, of homes and communities razed to the ground, of children murdered in cold blood, and of women brutally raped.
