This series represents “women and their cultures in modern times from all over the world.” Rebekah Merlino is a US Army veteran who served in Afghanistan. “The experience opened my eyes to how some women outside the US live,” stated Ms. Merlino. “I began the series with the story of Afghani women and continued with other cultures.”
