Mujdha is among the many women behind bars in Afghanistan’s prisons. She was arrested after her family complained to the Taliban that she had run away from her forced marriage to be with another. Under Taliban rule, running away with a man you are not married to is considered kidnapping, while it is also illegal for a woman to run away from her husband. Footage inside the prison shows women with their children walking the hallways and able to move between cells. Since the Taliban took over Afghanistan, it has emptied many prisons, releasing thousands of convicted criminals.
