Picture taken March 28, 2013 shows Afghan female prisoner Nuria with her infant boy at Badam Bagh, Afghanistan's central women's prison, in Kabul, Afghanistan. “When I went to court for the divorce, instead of giving me a divorce, they charged me with running away,” Nuria said. The man she wanted to marry was also charged and is now serving time in Afghanistan's notorious Pul-e-Charkhi prison. 202 women living in the six- year- old jail, the majority of the women are serving sentences of up to seven years for leaving their husbands, refusing to accept a marriage arranged by their parents, or choosing to leave their parent's home with a man of their choice.
