Women continue to be under-represented in photojournalism, and experiences such as Georgina's might explain at least part of the reason why. But she has also learned that being a female photographer can work in your favour. Georgina has photographed for UNICEF, the World Food Programme and Greenpeace, as well as news agencies such as Agence France-Presse. A male photographer might have found it difficult to get access to some of the environments in which she has been welcomed – places such as the cervical cancer ward at Nairobi's Kenyatta National Hospital and the Gynocare Women's and Fistula Hospital in Kenya's Rift Valley, not to mention Umoja, an all-female village near the town of Archers Post in Samburu County, Kenya – also known as "the village where men are banned".
"It would require a lot more trust for a man to be allowed in," she says. "Of course, there are many gentle, loving men who work in the industry, but there's something special that happens between women. I see it all the time. African women recognise humility and quiet strength in each other and they look for it in me, too."
