But he does so dressed as a boy and known by his male name. Each family has their own take on bacha posh. Journalist Ehrari said some parents told her they were "trying to hide or don't want to show others that they have daughter. Other parents said they desperately wanted their daughters to "have achievements.

Their clothes might be different, but the inequality remains, said Ehrari.

Love, Fate and Afghanistan

Making the transition back to living as a girl -- particularly after a brief glimpse of male freedoms -- can be a painful process. Shazia, who did not want her last name published, was nine years old and living in Kabul in when her parents decided to transition her to bacha posh for five years. With civil war raging, Shazia's parents had already sent her two older brothers away to Russia to avoid them being drafted.

But when her father -- a middle-class businessman dealing in imports and exports -- lost his leg in an accident, her mother and the remaining six daughters were left without a breadwinner. The simple home where Mangal Karimy lives. Practically overnight Shazia's daily chores changed dramatically -- from "cleaning and feeding the chickens" to "accompanying my mum at the local market. As "Mirwas" she could "fly kites, play soccer with neighborhood kids, ride my dad's bicycle -- all of which were not ordinary activities for a girl in Afghanistan," Shazia told CNN by phone from her New York home.

But she was also bullied by her sister and cousin for wearing boys' clothes and tasked with the most grueling chores. While the immediate family knew Shazia's true identity, the wider neighbourhood was unaware, and she describes the torment of "playing two different roles in society. I was stuck between being a girl and boy.

Hashimi says this transition between genders is "essentially imposing an identity crisis on a young psyche. Shazia's return to girlhood came at 13 when one of her older sisters intervened, telling the family "this is enough. Shazia's parents agreed and gradually she emerged into the world as a girl again, at first fearful of going "outside because my neighbors would see me" and "wearing a big scarf until I had grown my hair long enough.


How the heroin trade explains the US-UK failure in Afghanistan

A few months later, the family moved to Pakistan and Shazia was able to fully embrace her female identity. But years of boyhood, or having a masculine identity, "left me confused about my identity," she says. For many bacha posh children, becoming a girl again can be bittersweet says Hashimi. With so little data available, it's hard to say whether the practice is dwindling or growing.

Upcoming Events

But Hashimi believes bacha posh will ultimately "die out as Afghan society continues to advance the place of women in society. As the Islamist militant group gains ground, gender inequality -- and the need for bacha posh -- will continue, said Hashimi. Each year, the advocacy group Women for Afghan Women assists at least two bacha posh cases at its women's shelters across the country.
