Kabul’s first restuarant run by women for women

A new restaurant ran by survivors of domestic violence has opened in Kabul. Located in the heart of the capital it is managed by women for women. Men are welcomed too but only if they come with their families.

The founder Mary Akrami says she came up with this initiative “as most restaurants in Kabul are run by men and it’s difficult to have space for families”.This is a “space for women to feel free”, she adds.
