The Women of the Afghanistan War


09/05/2013 by syrbal-labrys

Some things you have to see to believe and feel, right? Well, then do the necessary clickage to go look at some very moving photographs. I like the mural on the wall of women in burkhas as the cleansing sea….

And then, this woman is not pictured, but she is very much “a woman of the Afghanistan war”...and also dead, murdered by Afghan militants.

    Amazing photos. The 16-year-old acid victim bravely showing what happened to her at that rally – the things that are being done … words fail me. And Sgt Lidya Admounabdfany – that was a heartening story.
