In honour to Afghan women
To honour International Women's Day, I am releasing a reportage I made in Kabul, in February 2004.
The eyes of the world were on the post war Afghanistan, on the path to the first democratic election. The United Nations-supervised voters' registration was taking place. 

In the streets, lines of people queuing to enter the registrations sites, Being a woman, I was allowed to enter a women site and connect with the women when they removed the burqua. 

Their emotion looking at their fist ever photo and a registration card.

Over 10.5 million Afghans registered during the large scale registration program. Almost 42 per cent of these voters were women - a remarkable figure given the harsh restrictions they suffered under the Taliban.
