Born in the mid-50s in Mazar-i-Sharif, a cultural and religious site in Afghanistan with famous shrines that get thousands of visitors annually, Dr Habiba Sarabi’s childhood was similar to that of many girls in her country.

In spite of the plans and policies at national and international levels, no substantial work has been done for the elimination of these issues from women’s lives.
