Erin Burnett sat down with an Afghan woman who is defying death threats as she vies to be the next president of Afghanistan. Fawzia Koofi, a member of Parliament, tells Burnett why she's motivated to continue her work in politics.
"I think the fact I have grown up in Afghanistan as a woman. I have experienced every day injustice and discrimination towards me as a woman. Plus, I have grown up in a political family and I was born in a political family."
Koofi added, "I cannot go back because I have come so much forward and there are people who support me, there are people who oppose me and that’s very common. So for the sake of my supporters, I need to…that gives me the motivation."
