Afghan women and children pose for various photos near the Bala Murghab district center, Badghis province, Afghanistan. Female Afghans are often victims of abuse or discrimination, but as the country transitions toward a new Afghanistan, females increasingly are attending school and higher education. This was witnessed firsthand during Operation Red Sand in Bala Murghab when insurgents sent their wives and children to line trees near a canal, then attacked from within their own families, using their wives and children as human shields.
