Real Bravery

Can you honestly tell me if you were a woman in Afghanistan right now - you'd risk your life and take to the streets to protest the new laws legalising marital rape and forcing women to stay in their homes unless they have their husband's permission to leave? That's really brave. The most telling quote (not in the article, in the Indie today) was from Sabrina Saqeb, the female MP who organised the protest, saying "These people are the same as the Taliban. There's no difference."
