Prisoners of Tradition

Venture inside a women’s prisons in Kabul and Mazar-e-Sharif to see a rare glimpse of a shocking aspect of Afghan society little known to the outside world. The majority of Afghan women in prison have committed no other crime than being in love with the wrong man — or running away from abusive husbands who were selected by their fathers.
