Grand Magal Touba, Senegal
November 8, 2017 –Women of the Ndiaye family prepare food for their noumerous family members and guets during the Grand magal in Touba while the men gather to pray on the morning of the Grand Magal. The Grand Magal is also the most important family reunion in Sehegal, and women are the center of the family in Senegalese society. They are respected and honored as the educators of the next generation of good Muslims and as the glue that holds together the family. Unlike in the Arab world, women are not considered to be husband‘s property and therefore do not have to wear veils.
