Liberia: Women's Land

Giulio Di Sturco was inspired by a place, Liberia, a small nation on the West African coast, and the women of that place. In 2008, Charles Taylor, former president of Liberia, was indicted for war crimes and crimes against humanity. The female experience of the war included widespread sexual violence committed against women and girls. Now, with Africa's only female president, what does the future hold for women in Liberia?
