A 2006 update on the challenges Afghan women face. It questions assumptions about gender chauvinism in Islam & the shortfalls of women's gender advocacy approaches in Afghanistan. Some of the women interviewed, claim that the Koran protects human & women's rights but that current Islamism in Afghanistan does not follow the Koran.

It was filmed and researched by Flavia Abdurahman, Video Journalist, in 2005-6 while on a 2-year assignment to Afghanistan.
