In this Wednesday, March 26, 2014 photo, Afghan lawmaker Lailoma Wali Hakimi from Nangarhar poses in the staircase in the parliament in Kabul, Afghanistan. When the Taliban ruled, women rarely left their home. When they did venture beyond their four walls, they wafted through crowded markets covered from head to toe in the all-encompassing burqa. While most women in conservative Afghanistan may still wear the burqa, today’s Afghan woman has choices she never had before, like running for parliament. (AP Photo/Anja Niedringhaus)
