Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

This book examines the roles of women in Afghanistan as they deal with both change and tradition. It describes and analyzes the success of women in these new occupational and educational opportunities, evaluating how such successes have come about in a nation still struggling to overcome years of poverty, corruption, regional power struggles, and the overwhelming destruction of war. The book also focuses on the unique health challenges faced by women and families in Afghanistan: recent developments in maternal and reproductive health care, lingering problems associated with chronic or transient food shortages, and the improved availability of basic health care.
