The more things change

The more they stay the same. It's stupid, I know, but yeah, I had the same moment of naivete that I'm sure a lot of people who already knew about RAWA did: Oh, now that the Taleban is deposed, we don't have to worry about them.

Not true.

Afghan women need your help, as much as they did before the US invaded.

Revolutionary Association of Women in Afghanistan:

RAWA was founded in 1977, and they've been fighting for women in Afghanistan every day since. I've known about them since 1997 or so, when a RAWA rep contacted us at the 3rd WWWave of Feminism to ask for help. Not being a foundation or trust-funded .org or anything, all we could do was publicize their plight and give money out of our own pockets, which we did.

I can still do that.

You could do that, too.

Help them fight.
