About that Afghani Constitution

Candace Gorman

One of the provisions that has been held out as a radical change in Afghanistan under the Karzai administration is the provision in the Afghani Constitution giving women the right to be treated equally.Unfortunately, it appears to be another of those fungible constitutional provisions that I mentioned yesterday…. Finland has just asked the important question: Did Karzai just sign a law making life worse for the women in Afghanistan than during the Taliban?The Afghani representative asked that his response be put off until the end of the conference… Maybe he will take Karzai's lead and leave before they get back to him.-From The Hague, at the international conference on Afghanistan
