Earthquake in Turkey: Women from Venus and Men from Mars?

In the eastern province of Van in Turkey an earthquake reduced many of its buildings to rubble on Sunday, Oct. 23. A two-week old baby girl, her mother and grandmother were rescued in Ercis on Tuesday. On this picture from The Turkey earthquake , something drew my attention. See the women faces and their direction compared to those of the men. The left tries to make contact by facial expression. Women aren’t from Venus as men are not from Mars, nevertheless when it comes to babies their connection becomes very different both gender in their own way busy with the rescue of this little creature.

What do you think?
