Military women trade combat for cookies and women's peace shura.
February 12, 2011
- First women's shura, or meeting, in over two years in Khowst Province, Afghanistan
- The government officials on hand weren't the average Afghan official. For starters, they're all female.
- For the female soldiers attending, it was the first time they had conducted an all female mission.
- Since in Afghanistan only women can engage women, they had to reach out to sister companies all over Khowst to get the women they needed.
