The Difficult Path


17-year-old Marietta plays for the Mauritania
women’s national football team. The Islamic
Republic of Mauritania is deeply conservative,
and for many the idea of women taking part in
such a sport is unpalatable. The path has not
been easy, but being part of the team enables
women of all backgrounds to play together, in
a society that is still heavily divided.
