Plight of Women Prisoners - 20 Dec 2013
Recent and archive images of women prisoners in Afghanistan.

Foreign aid donors have ensured regular meals, heating and healthcare. But those arrangements are now at risk and fears that women may be abandoned are growing as the prison's main benefactor, the Italian Provincial Reconstruction Team, winds down operations alongside most foreign troops.

The government has shown little interest in protecting hard-won rights for women and most of its limited funds will be devoted to fighting a growing Taliban insurgency.
