Women's Rights Cont.

So I posted a blog this morning about the crazy business in the Congo... and then I went to school. Some considerate individual seems to leave a copy of the NY Times on my seat every day, as I was reading through today's paper I learned of an Afghan protest that happened yesterday. Shi'ite women in Afghanistan protested a insane set of laws passed by the Afghan parliament. Despite a counter protest of about 3 times as many men, the women stood their ground and marched on (hat's off, my ladies) even after being assaulted with stones and even being spat on!

Anyway, read about it here.
