Women have had it tough in all kinds of societies in this world for centuries now. They have been beaten, suppressed, tortured and what not. While things are finally looking up for them at many places, women in Afghanistan remain oppressed. And that is why there can be seen girls dressed as boys there roaming about doing all the things boys can.
Well, there is a legit tradition called Bacha Posh back in Afghanistan where a girl child is dressed up as a boy so that she can taste freedom in the hallowed streets of that country.
