Women’s rights in Afghan

2 Dec

I’m not sure that I could image a fate worse than marrying someone that raped me, but sadly this is the reality for a rape victim in Afghanistan. She faces the continuation of her 12 year sentence for moral crimes if she does not agree to marry the man (having already had his child in prison).

To say that women are still denied their human rights in Afghan is an understatment.
