Daikundi governor Masooma Muradi (L) spoke to prisoners at a female detention centre in Nili, the province's capital, in May 2016Surrounded by male advisors and condescending “mansplainers”, Masooma Muradi holds her own against a deep underswell of sexism in a society unaccustomed to women exercising authority.
