Afghanistan’s first lady explains why she doesn’t do politics

Afghanistan’s first lady, Rula Ghani, has broken numerous conventions in a society that traditionally sequesters women behind closed doors. She has spoken out on issues such as violence against women, the rule of law, and the power of religion.

When her husband, President Ashraf Ghani, took the helm of the nation, he did something unprecedented — he introduced his wife at his inaugural speech.
