Women have long played a dominant role in agriculture in Ivory Coast and in the sprawling markets where most Ivorians purchase their daily necessities. Now some are breaking through into the most important positions in government, administration and business – positions long held by males in this traditional society. Ivorian women today work in a range of jobs – from gas-station attendant to plastic recycler and lawyer. International Women's Day is marked on March 8. (Photo by Thierry Gouegnon/Reuters)
