One photo can tell you the strength of a woman. Can you imagine what 300 can do?

More than 300 high-quality photos are being shared with the public. The images are of women and girls in two regions of the world: Bihar, India and Louisiana and Mississippi in the United States. It’s a positive look into their lives and what they are doing in their communities.

The photos are available on an online photo database thanks to the partnership between the David and Lucile Packard FoundationGetty Images, a world leader in visual communications, and The Verbatim Agency.

The collection gives a positive look into the lives of women and girls who are located in different parts of the world. What they have in common are their leadership qualities. They are in decision-making roles, accessing and providing quality reproductive health care and are actively involved in their communities.

All the photos were taken by two world-renowned women photographers, Nina Robinson and Paula Bronstein.
