Afghan Women

May 15, 1988

Your picture (Part I, April 27) of armed Afghan women, faces grim with determination, ready to fight for their rights, has caused me to wonder: What is going to happen to these women if the American-backed Muslim moujahedeen get back in power?

Will the women have to step back behind their veils according to fundamentalist Muslim custom without a chance for higher education and without the right to make choices? Will they again live shadow lives behind their fathers, husbands and brothers? Why do Americans choose to support regimes that suppress human rights?
