Tajikistan has passed a law that urges citizens to wear traditional clothes. Though the recommendation is vague and carries no penalties, authorities appear to have a specific goal in mind: discouraging women from wearing the Islamic hijab.

http://www.equalbeforethelaw.org/ One day when Farangiz was happily married with a son, she fell and broke her leg whilst cleaning the house in Khuroson, Tajikistan.

Our journey begins at a wedding in southern Tajikistan, where a young bride is getting married. But what should be a day of joy, is tinged with sadness as her groom will soon have to leave the country. Every year a million men leave Tajikistan to find work in Russia. Many find new families abroad, divorce their wives or simply never return. The women often left destitute are forced to do what would have been men's jobs or in some cases, are so desperate, they have to put their children into institutions. Tajikistan was once the breadbasket of the Soviet Union; today, the country's farms are worked by women. About 100,000 men were killed in a civil war that raged through the 1990s, but the gender imbalance has worsened as more and more men leave the country to find work on Russian const...

Featuring interviews with survivors of domestic violence and womens rights activists, the video explores the physical, psychological and sexual abuse that women face at the hands of their husbands, partners and other family members.
