Afghanistan: Law protecting women is tabled - called "un-Islamic"

The bill would have set a minimum age for marriage for girls, outlawed domestic violence, supported shelters for women who were victims of domestic abuse, barred prosecution of women for rapes committed against them, and banned "baad" (a practice of trading a young girl to settle a family dispute).

From here.

This is what we have been fighting for.
