#BIGPICTURE: Honoring women's history month, all month long


Day 22 of women's history month brings us to Nigeria, where a schoolgirl is being carried by a military commander. This girl, along with dozens of others, was released by Boko Haram extremists on Wednesday -- more than a month after being kidnapped by the militant group. It is unclear how many girls the group is still holding captive, or just how many died in their hands. Photographer: Afolabi Sotunde, Reuters.
