    Afghan Women Shut Out of Election

    Feminist Peace Network » Lack Of Female Poll Workers May Make It Impossible For Many Afghan Women To Vote

    Lack Of Female Poll Workers May Make It Impossible For Many Afghan Women To Vote

    And this presupposes their husbands will let them come vote in the first place. This is NOT democracy in action. Via the HuffPo:
    Millions of Afghan women will be denied their chance to vote in presidential elections this week because there aren’t enough female officials to staff the women-only polling stations.
    Women’s activists said the Independent Election Commission (IEC), which is organising the polls, still needs to recruit 13,000 women before Thursday’s elections.
    The IEC refused to comment on recruitment figures, but papers leaked to The Independent suggest the shortfall is much worse, at more than 42,000.
    Without female staff to operate the strictly segregated stations, and more importantly, without female searchers to frisk women voters as they arrive at those stations, conservative men across the country will ban their wives and daughters from taking part.

    They are now also liable to be legally raped or starved if they don't fancy a shag with their husbands. Sex with any other and it's death by stoning, not a dogs life but a woman's under a religion that some will tell us respects women and gives them freedoms denied women in the west.

    Hating and degragating what is actually a peaceful religious movement isn't going to work.

    It's NOT the religion, it's the culture twisting the religion , IT'S POLITICAL!! And the entire basis is subjugation of women.

    And it ain't just happening in the middle east.

    why do you equate not agreeing with as 'hate'? What could be more degrading than the way women are regarded and treated by most Islamic states? It IS the religion which gives rise to the culture, Islam degrades and oppresses women, to try and claim it's 'political' is just nonsense.

    Religion is a sad joke to start with. If they want to put up with the crap in the name of their particular fantasy, why the fuck should we give a rat's ass?

    Stop whining.

    The Afghans have never been known for their progressive approach to many things. I think cave-painting is still a relatively new art form for these people?

    Their GDP is still war and heroin-based.

    Hmm, clearly the Freedom & DemocracyTM franchise in Afghanistan is not following the Capitalist(c) model according to plan.

    Time to drop some more bombs to encourage further growth and stimulate the market.

    So this is you disagreeing, not hating? And does your opinion apply all Muslims , THEY all behave in this manner?

    And to not see this entire mysogynists movement, growing exponentially under guise of religion, any ol' patriarchal religion will do actually and it isn't just Islam, though I'll concede their brand is most extreme--to not see mass institutionalized sexism as political, well,that is what's utter nonsense.
