Women in Militaries: A Clever Ploy to Disguise the Fact That Most Women Are Far From Equal
Rafia Zakaria

The ‘inclusion’ of women in the killing machines at home and abroad can, if this last fact is considered, be a clever ruse of insisting that the dissenting woman, one who may not believe in the kinds of killing endorsed by a military, is an inadequate woman, never the heroine who is willing to kill.

More Power To The Women And Less To The Stupid Dupatta
Taskeen Zahra

The Mean Girls of Afghanistan
Madinah Noorai

Yes, because being an Afghan girl is like being in a sorority. Follow the rules, or you can’t sit with us. Either please the big sister, or get kicked out. You can wear short skirts, but not too short. You can date a guy or two, but not a Jew on national TV. You can pursue fashion, but not under Kim Kardashian because she’s a sex-tape phenomenon.

Sorry, But I Won’t Vote For A Female Candidate

They even banned female candidates from entering men’s sections inside the venues where municipal campaigns were launched. Furthermore, female candidates are not allowed to post their pictures in public places and those who do so will be fined SR10,000.
