Episode Detail: Afghanistan: Lifting the Veil - CNN: Special Investigations Unit

In this powerful follow-up to the 2001 “CNN Presents” episode “Beneath the Veil,” about life for Afghan women under the Taliban, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy traversed Afghanistan to see whether conditions have improved since the Taliban were ousted. She discovered that while some hope exists, change has been slow. For example, though the government no longer requires women to wear burqas, their husbands and families do. Included: women who committed self-immolation; a girls' school.
