Get a first-hand look at women's lives in Afghanistan since the fall of the Taliban by following a team of female journalists. These 14 young women, some still teenagers, trained as camera operators and video journalists at the AINA (http://www.ainaworld.org/) Afghan Media and Culture Center in Kabul between July 2002 to August 2003. They used their new skills to document the harsh lives of rural women of Afghanistan, who are not yet experiencing the greater freedoms enjoyed by the journalistic team. For example, in Herat, known as a cultural center with some of Afghanistan's finest architecture, a woman cannot travel without a male chaperone. Although it was difficult to find women who would speak on film because of their fear of punishment, the journalists interviewed a young woman whose husband was killed by U.S. bombs when she was six-months pregnant and who now struggles to feed her family.
