"Afghan Women's Rights": When the United States invaded Afghanistan, the liberation of Afghan women was used as a rallying cry to garner public support. Now, after nearly 15 years and hundreds of billions in taxpayer dollars spent, violence and oppression are still a fact of life for the country's women. With the Taliban gaining ground again, Isobel Yeung reports from Kabul on the fight for dignity and rights in Afghanistan.

"Floating Armories": Who stops world trade from grinding to a standstill? In many cases, it's private military contractors and their network of weapons storage ships in lawless international waters. Taking a closer look at who's protecting global commerce today, VICE co-founder Suroosh Alvi reports from one of these floating armories in the Gulf of Aden.
