For several years now I’ve been following the work of photojournalist Paula Lerner, first from her tireless efforts to arm fellow photographers with better business practices through the EP group to her own photographic work documenting women’s issues such as breast cancer awareness.

Lerner’s latest project, “The Women of Kabul,” currently a multimedia feature on Washingtonpost.com, merges several of her interests and deserves a closer look. The Women of Kabul examines five female entrepreneurs in Afghanistan who are rebuilding their lives and their country by rebuilding their businesses.
