It depends on the country. In Afghanistan, it's going backward. The Deobandi sect of Islam, originally from India, is the "spiritual ancestor" of the Taliban. The burka is a Central Asian garment which women in Afghanistan have to wear, whether or not they like it. By the same token, in Turkey it's possible, in theory, to have a mosque, a synagogue, and a church on the same street. They're looking to the future. In Saudi Arabia they're going nowhere, the Wahhabists are running the show and the religious police there will bust you if you're female and you're caught with a man who's neither your husband or brother. You could get killed.

This is just so heartbreaking to me. I have a seven year old step daughter and to think something like this could ever happen to her really tugs at my soul. And the reality is, there are thousands, if not millions, of little girls and women who live under this sort of oppression.

Life is just too precious to be lived like this.

It's awful. It's a very repressive regime.
