Brighter future for Afghanistan's girls?


More than three million girls in Afghanistan are now receiving some form of education - a sign of the country's changing attitudes towards women.

Despite the changes, girls and women still face many restrictions in the country's male dominated society, and an uncertain future once Nato forces withdraw.
