Next time, when you cheer an unruly group of lumpen men led by the macho hero collectively leching an item-girl on screen, don't forget that you are encouraging a culture of sexual objectification and domination over women.
Dillon Romain's insight:

I wish something like this would have happened in my book. The women deserve to be stood up for and should be treated with the respect that they need.

★★★★★ You should really read this book, albeit it is a work of fiction I am sure the situation in Afghanistan is still bad if not worse than how it is shown in the book. I must re-read this book from time to time..

Dillon Romain's insight:

This article is a good example as to how much more power men think that they have over women. As soon as a woman tries to step up and make a difference for other women she is shot dead.

I think that in many countries around the world women do not have any rights. Nadia Sediqqi was shot when she tried to fight for women's rights. If someone shot her they most likely didn't like what she was fighting for or obviously thoughts she was a threat. More needs to be done about women's rights in some countries.

I think it's sad that men think they are always in charge, I think women should be able to stand up for themselves without getting shot.
Alaina Rahn's curator insight, October 4, 2013 9:45 AM

Nadia Sediqqi was shot on her way to work one day. Nadia Sediqqi has been fighting for womens rights in other countries. Many female Afghan government officials go with out bodygards and a lot of them get shot or hurt in some other ways. I think the women should have bodygards or someone else with them for their own saftey.

women in Afghanistan struggle for their rights

Afghan Women: A History of Struggle - Part 1 of 22 Website: http://www.afghanwomensfund.org
Dillon Romain's insight:

 

 This video basically shows the trouble that comes along with being a woman
     in Afghanistan under the taliban and all of the laws that they put into
     place. It also shows all of the problems that women deal with because of
     all of the unfair marriage laws. The video shows all of these women with
     severe injuries and all the violence that they face for things such as not
     wanting to sleep with their husbands.

Dillon Romain's insight:

This article does a good job showing that even though all of the odds are pretty much against women,they are not stopping and continue to come together and bring an end to the cruelty that they face on a daily basis.

U.N. Details Widespread Abuse Of Afghan Women And Girls

U.N. Details Widespread Abuse Of Afghan Women And Girls | A Thousansd Splendid Suns: Womens Rights | Scoop.it
KABUL, Afghanistan — Afghan women are frequent victims of abuse, despite some success by authorities in prosecuting rape cases, forced marriages and domestic violence under a 3-year-old law, according to a report issued Tuesday by the United Nations.
Dillon Romain's insight:

I like this article because it does a pretty good job relating to my book. And it also does a good job giving an insight look as to why it is tough to be a woman in Kabul. It makes me upset that a woman cant even walk to work without worrying.

This article makes me happy to be where I am. I'm glad I don't have to see women be treated like that. I think other women here should also be happy to be where they are
Afra Sengul's comment, October 1, 2013 7:00 PM
This article literally made me upset, and I feel bad that not everyone, including women, can't be free and not have to worry about anything in their daily lives. I am blessed to know I'm safe where I am, but hope that in every country, things will change and that no one has to be treated badly.
Alaina Rahn's comment, October 4, 2013 11:39 AM
This article is very sad but It is what a lot of womens lives are like in other countries. I dont think it is fair that some women have to like like this. I think this should be stopped. Other countries need to help stop this from continuing.
