Shamsia Hassani, one of Afghanistan’s first female street artists, creates vibrant murals on Kabul’s walls, hoping to beautify the city and give Afghan women a voice. “Because I’m a girl, even if I don’t do art, if I just walk in the street, I will hear a lot of words,” she says. “And if I do art, then they will come to harass me.” (UCLA)
