Karzai legalizes marital rape

Mother. Fucker.
Afghan leader accused of bid to 'legalise rape'

In a massive blow for women's rights, the new Shia Family Law negates the need for sexual consent between married couples, tacitly approves child marriage and restricts a woman's right to leave the home...

. . .

The provisions are reminiscent of the hardline Taliban regime, which banned women from leaving their homes without a male relative. But in a sign of Afghanistan's faltering steps towards gender equality, politicians who opposed it have been threatened.

Now go support the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan.
