Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA)

Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA) has been advocating for women's rights in Afghanistan since 1977. The telling story is that the women are not treated any differently now than they were during either the pre-Soviet occupation, or the Soviet and their puppet governments and now under the Taliban regime. The website has some disturbing videos of the public executions mentioned in this MetaFilter thread. (I have not watched the videos.)

tamim, thanks for this link.

It's a tragedy what happening to the great and ancient country of Afghanistan. I feel it must be a little like hearing the reports that were emanating from Cambodia in 1976.

Unfortunately no one in the West seems to care, evidently American spy planes are far more interesting.
