Four decades of conflict have ravaged Afghanistan and its families. Widows are considered bad omens, and few women are literate or have worked outside the home. Widows can remarry relatives or leave the family but lose custody of children. There is no Pashto or Dari word for single mother. Many women have been stripped of their agency. And yet, women are battling the legal system for rights and demanding a place in society. We plan to intimately tell the stories of these women and their struggle for a better future in a violent but changing Afghanistan.
