Veiled Afar woman in Danakil, Ethiopia
Afar women have to fight against old and cruel traditions with men, as infibulation to keep the virginity and excision to get them away from pleasure are still practiced.
The afars live in a triangle between Ethiopia, Eritrea and Djibouti. Few years ago, they asked for independance, and war took place...Now, they have a special district in Ethiopia, but tensions are still heavy with Oromo people.
