At age 27, Hosna Jalil was the first woman appointed to a high Interior Ministry post in Afghanistan. She held the post of Deputy for Policy and Strategic Affairs and later Deputy for Women Affairs. Until the age of nine she lived under the Taliban regime, not being allowed to attend school. Despite this she went on to achieve a BA in Physics before completing a master’s degree in Business Management at the American University of Afghanistanan. Hosna is an independent, feminine, wandering soul. "Women have not been allowed to move out of the house, or even have a professional carrier. Not at all, because that was according to the ruling system of Taliban. That led to a mentality being created unconsciously within me, that whenever I was thinking of a woman, there has been a word associated to that. And that word associated to women is the word 'dependent'. And whenever I was thinking of being a woman, the first thing that I could think of was being an dependent individual, or a dependent human being. Who is fed by a man, who works day and night at home, but at the same time, is not rewarded like a man."
