From Economica:

The region of Kashmir and Jammu in northern India is home to many impoverished women struggling to support themselves and their families. With few profitable industries to choose from, and little educational background, they turn to brick-making, farming, and weaving. For some, teaching and nursing are also viable alternatives, though these jobs are difficult to find and often require travel. In this photo series, photographer Elena Fava Emerson shares a glimpse of the women of the region hard at work.
