Radio Shaesta -- Pashto for “beauty” -- had sought to educate women about their rights and address taboo subjects like reproductive health and domestic violence. We have had an enormous impact on the lives of women, raising their awareness of their rights, of what they can achieve, encouraging women to take part in politics, to vote and to put themselves forward for provincial council seats,” Hassan said.
