BBC News has an interesting Photo Journal about Sabrina Sagheb, a 24-year-old woman running in Afghanistan’s parliamentary election.
The photos and associated text reveal a startling mix of currents within today’s Afghan society. I hope she survives until the election.
Sabrina is campaigning on a platform of liberal reform and gender equality.
She hopes to make the wearing of the burkha a matter of choice for all women and advocates an end to forced marriages.
