Stone Worker, Trivandrum, South India

Kerala is undergoing a major development, and this requires new and better highways. Piles of rocks are deposited along roads under construction, sometimes spilling over into front yards. Women of all ages work throughout the day breaking up the rock into gravel for road work. This is considered a good job for a woman: in our terms, she enjoys a short commute, flexible hours, and a steady paycheck. This woman is working just a few feet from her house, seen in the background.
