Junior community reporter Sunita, 22, walks to a remote village to distribute this week's Khabar Lahariya newspapers and interview villagers in Chitrakoot, Uttar Pradesh, India on 5th December 2012. Sunita and her husband, now sick with TB and unable to work, were estranged from their families because they married against the family's wishes, so Sunita, who had finished her high-school education, supports her husband on the income she makes as a journalist. She makes about 4500 rupees a month. Photo by Suzanne Lee for Marie Claire France.
