Description

20 years, four presidents, thousands dead, an emboldened Taliban, and women's rights far from protected.

What’s changed in Afghanistan after years of international involvement? Or rather, why does it feel like nothing’s changed?

President Biden has announced the withdrawal of troops by September this year, although they are already leaving in droves. 

Our international editor Lindsey Hilsum finds a nation still as fragile and unpredictable as before, but also discovers hope and optimism from the women who want to build a better future.
