Women Park Rangers in Afganistan's National Park

This is great news for a conservative country such as Afghanistan. Four women have been hired to patrol the Band-e-Amir National Park.

These four ladies are the Afghanistan's first female park rangers. Band-e-Amir National Park managers, representatives from the villages in the park, district governments and ministry of agriculture unitedly agreed to the initiative in 2012.





Ladies were then hired in July 2013 and received the same training as men. Considering the fact that Afghanistan is a strict patriarchal society, where only about 16 percent of women are employed, this really is a huge milestone and perhaps an indicator for a brighter future for all the Afghan women.
