Purifying our image of womanhood

As I drive along the road from the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan, on my way to the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) headquarters for a meeting, I can see only the eyes of the women I pass.

Life for women here is quite different from what we normally see in the United States. The men walk with men and the women walk behind them carrying everything and wearing burkas that hide everything but their eyes. After seeing this day after day in many countries in this region, I can’t help but wonder if these women will ever gain more freedom.
