For Afghan Women, Rights Again at Risk

Rachel Reid writes about women right’s in Afghanistan for the op-ed page of The Washington Post: “There have been some bright spots: Women now hold seats in the Afghan parliament, and millions of girls have been able to attend primary school. But educational gains plummet when girls hit secondary school, with just 4 percent of female students reaching 10th grade. Violence against women is endemic; women in public life are regularly threatened, and several have been assassinated.”
