What We've Brought Women in Afghanistan

Women like Malalai Joya insist that, although life was hard before US invasion, life has gotten even harder since we've been there. Here's a taste of life for women under the Taliban rule in Afghanistan today: How would you feel if...

-you had your fingers cut off because you had painted your nails

-you were whipped in public for showing your ankles

-you weren't allowed to laugh loudly, or wear high heels that made any noise

These are just a taste of some of life's hardships. Read the list of restriction placed on both men and women under the Taliban regime.
