Shhhh! Obama doesn't want you to know what his policy of appeasing the Taliban is doing for Afghan women
The Afghan government is planning to close all or most of the American-built abused women’s shelters because the Taliban claim they are houses of prostitution. That would be devastating for the 90% of Afghan women who suffer horribly from abuse by Afghan men and relatives.
I guess we can expect to see self-immolation cases soar as women prefer to burn themselves to death rather than remain in households as abused child brides and slave wives.
This is why it will be absolutely devastating to lose these women’s/children’s shelters.
