Episode Description:

Afghan women can now vote and run for office, but they are still second-class citizens. Domestic violence is entrenched in society, the majority of women in Afghanistan are illiterate, and nearly half are married off while still children, under 16. Shocking numbers of Afghan women set themselves on fire, a fact that is underreported by Western media and may well signal their desperation. Whether the current election will help rectify these problems remains to be seen.
