Eva Chura, 42, a ‘pallaquera’ known as a gold picker, breastfeeds her three-month-old son Alizon, as she eats inside their room in La Rinconada, the Andes, Peru, October 11, 2019. “I don’t count my husband, because he is no help as a father or a husband,” Chura said. “I’m the papa and the mama. … We don’t want for anything. We have everything.” REUTERS/Nacho Doce SEARCH “WOMEN GOLD PICKERS FEMICIDE” FOR THIS STORY. SEARCH “WIDER IMAGE” FOR ALL STORIES. TPX IMAGES OF THE DAY
