Working as a female journalist in Afghanistan "is not easy" because it's not safe, but many girls still decide to do it.

That's what Sadaf Ahamdi, a member of the Afghan Women Journalists Union told Shamsuddin Hamedi of the UN Mission in Afghanistan, UNAMA.

Ms Ahamdi was speaking with Mr Hamedi to mark International Women's Day, recognised on March 8. The theme for this year's event is "Women in the Changing World of Work".

Mr Hamedi also spoke to journalists from the all-female station, Radio Sana, in the north Afghan city of Pul-e-Khumri about their experiences.
