Documentary: VICE - Afghan Women's Rights, Aden's Floating Armories Part one takes a look at Women's Rights in Afghanistan, if any. Part two investigates the (Left) An Afghan girl attends a female engagement team meeting in Balish Kalay Village, Urgun District, Afghanistan, March 27, 2015. Women and children attended the meeting with the FET of Paktika Provincial Reconstruction Team to discuss major issues and concerns. The FET gathers vital information from Paktika women, and uses that information to help improve their economic, educational and health issues. For the FET, this meeting was a rare opportunity to learn more about the women of Afghanistan. (Right) EU Naval Force in the Gulf of Aden: Operation followed a similar event in January, when more than half of the men and women serving with the EU Naval Force were co-located at sea, close to the Internationally Recommended Transit Corridor in the Gulf of Aden. March 25, 2014.

Part one: takes a look at Women’s Rights in Afghanistan, if any. When the United States invaded Afghanistan, the liberation of Afghan women was used as a rallying cry to garner public support. After nearly 15 years at war, and hundreds of billions in taxpayer dollars spent – violence and oppression are still a fact of life for the country’s women.

With the Taliban gaining ground again, Isobel Yeung reports from Kabul on the fight for dignity and rights in Afghanistan.

Part two: investigates the”Floating Armories”. Who stops world trade from grinding to a standstill? In many cases, it’s private military contractors and their network of weapons storage ships in lawless international waters. Taking a closer look at who’s protecting global commerce today, VICE co-founder Suroosh Alvi reports from one of these floating armories in the Gulf of Aden.
