Stop Taliban's War on Women
Petition Background (Preamble):
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.
Some women got their fingers cut off because of putting nail polish on.
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.
Everyone has a right to a tolerable human existence, even if they are women in a Muslim country in a part of the world that Americans do not understand.
Equality and human decency is a RIGHT and not a privilege, whether one lives in Afghanistan or in the United States.
