Leaving Afghanistan - but what about women's rights?
An exit strategy has been laid down for the withdrawal of coalition troops from Afghanistan. President Obama has set a deadline of July 2011 for beginning the drawdown of US forces and David Cameron has stated that by 2015 Britain will not have a combat presence in the region. But many Afghan women fear that the quest for a quick peace will mean negotiating with the Taliban and a return to their oppressive regime. So how will women’s rights be affected once the troops have gone? Jenni discusses the issues with Sue Turrell, Director of WOMANKIND Worldwide and from Kabul the journalist and human rights activist Horia Mosadeq.
