Forget Those “Tea Parties”…

15 April, 2009 at 9:53 am (Civil Rights)

this is a protest that I can really get behind.

Women in Afghanistan are protesting a new law which makes it necessary for a woman to ask her husband’s permission before leaving the house, and essentially legalizes marital rape (says a husband can demand sex from his wife every four days). Forget vague protests here in the United States; these women are protesting something that really matters.
