-Women in Afghanistan–Truth is Just as Strange as Fiction in This Case

by Dr. D ~ September 24th, 2009

According to the UN nearly 90% of the women in Afghanistan suffer from some kind of domestic abuse and so do many of their children. Apparently one the greatest sins that an Afghan woman can be guilty of is being barren. Also, this is a country that seems to excuse rapists and punish the women who are raped?

Read this shocking story from CNN.

This article really does confirm the realities of life for women in Afghanistan as depicted in the novel by Khaled Hosseini:

-"A Thousand Splendid Suns" –a book that I highly recommend for gaining a better understanding of family life in the Middle East—particularly Afghanistan. Plus it’s just a good read.

For more on the treatment of women in Muslim countries also read this recent post on my apologetics page:
