KANDAHAR, AFGHANSISTAN – 5/15/2007: A young woman holds up a shawl she is embroidering in the khamak style. A traditional activity for home-bound Kandahari women, no one objects to them doing this work. For the past several years a Kandahar-based NGO has been marketing this product which gives this woman and others an earning power they never had before. (Photo by © Paula Lerner)
