A sea of green-and-black-clad women of all ages sway in the stands of Orlando Stadium in Soweto, clapping their hands, chanting and singing — all in honor of the late anti-apartheid stalwart, Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, who died on April 2, at the age of 81, and was laid to rest on Saturday in Johannesburg.

A mural on the outside wall of Dapchi Government Girls Science and Technology College in Yobe state, northeast Nigeria, is symbolic: It depicts a teacher leading a young girl to school. But what strikes you most about the painting of the woman and girl in pink is the bullet holes: both the teacher and girl are riddled with them.

On the night of Feb. 19, armed men opened fire, violating the sanctity of this girls' boarding school. They abducted 110 of the school's 900 girls. The attack was likely the work of the extremist group Boko Haram.
