Afghanistan is a dangerous place for journalists to work, especially women. Journalists are harassed, terrorized and murdered in this war-torn country. But Khalida Rashid won’t be deterred from pursuing her profession. She covers politics and news for Zan TV, the country’s first all-female news network. Rashid hopes to pave the way for others who want to follow in her footsteps. “When a woman is empowered, society is empowered,” she says.
