Check this out: Policewomen in Afghanistan

This just blows my mind. In a country as ANCIENT/devoutly religious in their views as Afghanistan, you find policewomen. I would love to read more personal stories from these women – what made them want to be police officers and how they overcame the discrimination. Obviously this is not a common career choice for Afghan women.

This story linked below is very sad, but not surprising unfortunately. It is not a secret that women are not respected in Afghan societies. The disrespect actually goes much further and becomes burning hatred towards educated women, especially powerful ones.

I think it is very important for women to stay strong and set an example and speak out for education for our sex and proper rights, but I kinda think becoming a police woman and putting yourself in the direct line of fire of the opposition is a bit of a death sentence, no? Am I being weak?
