Photo Spotlight: Gum on the street

A woman in a burqa and gloves sells gum on the streets of Kabul.  Under Taliban rule women were not allowed to leave their homes without being escorted by a male relative and were required to wear a burqa which covered their bodies from head to toe. Though women have more freedom now than under Taliban rule, some still wear the burqa.
