AFGHANISTAN-UNREST-WOMEN-SOCIETY-DIVORCE

This photograph taken on January 16, 2017, shows Afghan woman Nadia, 22, who is trying to get divorced from her husband, during an interview with an AFP journalist at her lawyer's office in Jalalabad. When Nadia's heroin addict husband began assaulting her with a metal rod, she did something unthinkable for many women in Afghanistan -- she left him. Domestic abuse is endemic in the deeply patriarchal country, but for the first time a growing number of Afghan women are embracing divorce as a new kind of empowerment. / AFP PHOTO / NOORULLAH SHIRZADA / TO GO WITH AFP STORY: Afghanistan-unrest-women-society-divorce, FEATURE by Anuj Chopra (Photo credit should read NOORULLAH SHIRZADA/AFP via Getty Images)
