Can Women In Afghanistan Have A Happy New Year?

The season’s first snowfall in Afghanistan brought out these bundled up women waiting for a bus in Kabul. Keep in mind that women in Afghanistan have the lowest life expectancy in the world – 42.5 years. Adding insult to injury, busses don’t bother to stop at all if only women are waiting – they drive right by. And if there are men in the waiting group, they shove their way to the front so they can get on first! Women in Afghanistan don’t stand a chance.
