Afghan Women: Back To The Taliban Future

Put Another Child On The Fire
Cook Me Up Some Mutton And Some Beans
And Go Out To The Ox Cart And Fix The Tire
And Wash My Sacks And Sew My Old Galibayyas
Honey You Can Fill My Shisha And Then Go Fetch My Kuffis
And Boil Me Up Another Pot Of Tea
And Put Another Child On The Fire
And Come And Tell Me Why You ...
   ...   Wish You Were Dead!

For women in Afghanistan, it's been hard work attaining the few rights they have.
The traditional role of women in Afghanistan is very restricted, especially in rural areas.
Many women fear that their rights are in danger once the NATO troops leave the country in 2014.
