Afghan Women’s Continuous Fight for Liberation

Afghan Women’s Continuous Fight for Liberation

Monday, September 13, 2010 - 10:30pm

The history of women in Afghanistan is one of continuous struggle, be that against Persia, Britian, Russia, and now the United States. Yet beyond the struggle against a foreign invader, Afghan women’s battle has always been a double strug­gle, because at one and the same time as they fought against foreign invaders, they fought as well against their own profoundly male chauvin­ist culture. 

* How does Obama’s troop surge in Afghanistan affect Afghan women? 

* Can women trust that Af­ghan and U.S. leaders will not sell out their freedom for a so-called “peace” with the Taliban? 

* How are women fighting back against tremendous odds and how can others express their international and revo­lutionary solidarity?
