Title: Niger Delta women
Description: A woman from Ikarama village points at the river next to her house, which has been polluted by an oil spill, Niger Delta, Nigeria, May 2013.
She told Amnesty International researchers that water is no longer drinkable, children who have to bathe in the water develop skin rashes, and that there are no more fish in the river.

In Niger Delta communities, women take a prominent role in economic activities, including most of the farming and fishing. But they are often excluded from the processes designed to assess and compensate for oil spills.
