What do you believe Afghanistan

"Recent history has been harsh to Afghan women--and we don't want to see it repeated. We have made incredible gains in the last 10 years. Women are working as doctors, lawyers and businesswomen; and girls are at school. But what is life going to be like for us in the next 10 years? Already life is getting tougher for Afghan women. Afghan women want peace--not a stitch up deal that will confine us to our homes again. We are a voice that must be heard."

--Orzala Ashraf Nemat, co-author of the Oxfam report "A place at the table: Safeguarding women's rights in Afghanistan," October 2011
