Istanbul. September, 2014

March is Women's History Month. And here's a sign that greets you as you are about to enter the jewel-like Rüstem Paşa Mosque, famous for the beautiful blue of its tilework, not far from Istanbul's Spice Bazaar. In this mosque, as in many others, the women are secluded behind a carved screen, usually in the back, separate from the men.
