Meet a New Generation of Women in Kabul

Filmmaker Delphine Renou profiles a new generation of Afghan women standing up for rights long withheld by previous regimes. From police officers to boxers, these women present the new face of Afghanistan, as they take part in street art, rap songs, and even driving.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic’s editors. We look for pieces that emphasize National Geographic's mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers themselves created the content presented here. The opinions expressed are those of the filmmakers, and not those of the National Geographic Society.
