The story behind "for the women: Mother and daughter, Isla Mujeres"

I always remember reading one of fellow traveller Matt’s (from Where The Hell is Matt) Less FAQ’s:

? Why is the world so screwed up?

Men.

? How do we fix it?

Women.

Here is a simple picture of a mother and child to celebrate the 2011 Nobel Peace prize, which was just awarded to three women: Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, Liberian activist Leymah Gbowee, and Yemeni rights campaigner Tawakkul Karman. They’re being recognized “for their non-violent struggle for the safety of women and for women’s rights to full participation in peace-building work.”

Congratulations to them and hopefully they will be an inspiration to other countries and cultures where women are not treated as equals; and to men in power everywhere that value the power they have more than the good it can bring to society when used right.

The image was shot at aptly named Isla Mujeres, ‘the Island of Women’ off the coast of Cancun, Mexico, a wonderful and relaxed place, just short boat ride away from the miles and miles of all-inclusive hotels…
