Women of Courage shares an intimate look at the inspiring women who are forging a new future in Afghanistan and playing a crucial role in the changing landscape of this turbulent nation. First-hand stories and experiences are shared in conversations with a wide array of women-from a beekeeper to a presidential candidate to an Olympic sprinter to a schoolteacher. Mesmerizing photographs accompany unfiltered interviews, giving voice to a culture of women that has been silenced for decades under the oppressive regime of the Taliban.
