Tortured Afghan teen on attackers: 'The same should be done to them'

Date: May 8, 2012
Authors: Nick Paton Walsh and Ashley Fantz
QUOTE: Under Taliban rule from 1996 to 2001, women were banned from classrooms, politics or employment. Women who wanted to leave home had to be escorted by a male relative and were forced to wear burqas. Those who disobeyed were publicly beaten....Rights groups have cited advances since then....But stories of honor killings, poisoned wells at girls schools and disfigurements persist.
