Read Our Special Feature: Voices from Afghanistan

Diary of An Afghan Woman

IMG 20210907 WA0000

Four women share with us their daily lives in Afghanistan. Join them as they express their love for the country, the people, and each other; and as they share with you their deepest fears and most intimate moments.

They refuse to be silenced as they journey through this new, uncharted chapter in Afghanistan's history.

We at TSOS are honored to provide a platform for their voices to be heard. We will post entries as we receive them. For safety purposes, names have been changed and only avatars (designed with input from each woman) will be used.

Tulips are native to Afghanistan and are considered their national flower. Despite not being comfortable in sharing her art, Noor drew this painting of tulips to share with you, one tulip for each of the women in her family still in Afghanistan...herself and her two sisters, her mother, and her grandmother.
