  1. Afghanistan is one of the most challenging places in the world to be a woman:

    Many women die in pregnancy and childbirth: 460 deaths/100,000 live births (2010)

    85% of women have no formal education and are illiterate.

    Female 3rd level students as a % of Total: 18.0%

    Total live births per woman – average of 6

    1 out 10 children die before their fifth birthday.

    Life expectancy for women is 51.
