Afghan women boxers warm up for practice at the Kabul stadium boxing club. The women, who are 18 and older, don’t have much more than determination, and a trainer who runs them through their paces, watches as they spar, corrects their technique, tells them when to jab, how to protect themselves, when to power through with a left and then a right.

The Afghanistan National Olympic Committee boxing club has fewer than a dozen women and little money for them. Previously nongovernmental organizations supported them. At that time there were 25 young women who received a salary the equivalent of $100 per month and transportation to and from the Kabul Stadium where they train. (Photo by Massoud Hossaini/AP Photo)
