'I Feel Great Pain': How A Former Afghan Female Legislator Escaped The Taliban
Former Afghan legislator Shukria Barakzai describes the harrowing experience of how she escaped from Kabul after the capital fell to the Taliban. Wearing three veils, she disguised herself to slip past the Taliban militants who were hunting for her. After spending several days in hiding, she was evacuated to Great Britain. Barakzai says that being a refugee causes her "great pain" and she's now trying to help other female politicians and activists find ways out of Afghanistan.
