>>>Dear Friends:
>>>            Please do not ignore this email. This is something that we as
>>>women and essentially as human beings need to support -
>>>
>>>I don't know if this is going to help but take 3 minutes out of your life
>>>to do your part.
>>>
>>>Madhu,the government of Afghanistan, is waging a war upon women. Since 
>>>the
>>>Taliban took power in 1996, women have had to wear burqua and have been
>>>beaten and stoned in public for not having the proper attire, even if 
>>>this
>>>means simply not having the mesh covering in front of their eyes. One
>woman
>>>was beaten to death by an angry mob
>>>of fundamentalists for accidentally exposing her arm
>>>while she was driving.
>>>
>>>Another was stoned to death for trying to leave the country with a man
>that
>>>was not a relative. Women are not allowed to work or even go out in 
>>>public
>>>without a male relative; professional women such as professors,
>>>translators, doctors, lawyers, artists and writers have been forced from
>>>their jobs and stuffed into their homes.
>>>Homes where a woman is present must have their windows painted so that 
>>>she
>>>can never be seen by outsiders. They
>>>must wear silent shoes so that they are never heard. Women live in fear 
>>>of
>>>their lives for the slightest misbehavior. Because they cannot work, 
>>>those
>>>without male
>>>relatives or husbands are either starving to death or begging on the
>>>street, even if they hold Ph.D.s. Depression is becoming so widespread
>that
>>>it has reached
>>>emergency levels. There is no way in such an extreme Islamic society to
>>>know the suicide rate with certainty, but relief workers are estimating
>>>that the suicide rate among women, who cannot find proper medication and
>>>treatment for severe depression and would rather take their lives than
>live
>>>in such conditions, has increased
>>>significantly.
>>>
>>>There are almost no medical facilities available
>>>for women. At one of the rare hospitals for women,a reporter found still,
>>>nearly lifeless bodies lying motionless on top of beds, wrapped in their
>>>burqua,
>>>unwilling to speak, eat, or do anything, but slowly wasting away.
>>>
>>>Others have gone mad and were seen crouched in
>>>corners, perpetually rocking or crying, most of them in
>>>fear.  One doctor is considering, when what little
>>>>medication that is left finally runs out, leaving these women in front 
>>>>of
>>>>the president's residence as a form of protest. It is at the point where
>>>>the term "human rights violations" has become an understatement.
>>>
>>>Husbands have the power of life and death over their women relatives,
>>>especially their wives, but an angry
>>>mob has just as much right to stone or beat a woman, often to death, for
>>>exposing an inch of flesh or  offending them in the slightest way. Women
>>>enjoyed
>>>relative freedom, to work, dress generally as they wanted, and drive and
>>>appear in public alone
>>>until only 1996.
>>>
>>>The rapidity of this transition is the main reason for the depression and
>>>suicide;  women who were once educators or doctors or simply used to 
>>>basic
>>>human freedoms are now severely restricted and treated as subhuman in the
>>>name of right-wing fundamentalist Islam. It is not their tradition or
>>>'culture,' but it is alien to them, and it is extreme even for those
>>>cultures where fundamentalism is the rule.
>>>
>>>Everyone has a right to a tolerable human existence, even if they are
>women
>>>in a Muslim country. If we can threaten military force in Kosovo in the
>>>name of human rights for the sake of ethnic Albanians, citizens of the
>>>world can certainly express peaceful outrage at the   oppression, murder
>>>and injustice committed against
>>>women by the Taliban.
>>>
>>>
>>>STATEMENT: In signing this, we agree that the current treatment of women
>in
>>>Afghanistan is completely UNACCEPTABLE and deserves action by the United
>>>Nations and that the current situation overseas will not be  tolerated.
>>>Women's Rights is not a small issue
>>>anywhere, and it is UNACCEPTABLE for women in 1999 to be treated as
>>>subhuman and so much as property. Equality and human decency is a RIGHT
>not
>>>a freedom, whether one lives in Afghanistan or elsewhere.
