Social Structure in Afghanistan Culture
Afghanistan tends to be a "fixed culture." Societal structure does not change rapidly, and tends to be similar throughout the country and societal levels.
However, it is late at night, and I'm too tired at the moment to explain the power structures existing at the village, the urban power structures, status, women, as well as the individual in society.
These are super important to know and understand, so you can properly navigate the culture and know who to shake hands with first when meeting the village elders, but I'll come back next week when I have more time to properly explain this.
