Summary
"Six years after Channel 4's program on Afghanistan under the taliban, Channel 4 has returned to Afghanistan to see what has changed since the fundamentalist regime was toppled. This program sets out to discover if girls are going to school, if women are allowed to work and whether they have freedom to dress as they please. Reporter Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy travels across the country and finds a society still struggling to define what role women should play. Despite being "liberated" from the Taliban many are still trapped by poverty and fear. She talks to teachers and students who risk their lives to attend school, but they are in the minority. Only one in five Afghani girls receives some form of education. She meets a war widow forced to beg on the streets of Kabul and a child bride sold by her father when she was just seven years of age. Neither seems to have a way out. For some women this powerlessness has turned to despair. As the report shows, the rate of female suicide in Afghanistan is shocking".-- edited from the ABC's Four Corners website
