I was going to use the cutesy "Slutwalk: Afghanistan" title on this post, but this really isn't the time for cutesy. These women are risking their very lives by marching in the street to demand some semblance of respect from their male dominators -- The least I can do in return is show them the respect they deserve.
My prayers, of course, are with these brave souls!

In high heels and head scarves, a small band of Afghan women took to the streets of the country's capital Kabul on Thursday to protest harassment by men. The sign (in blue) reads, "To disgrace women is to disgrace humanity". REUTERS/Mohammad Ismail (AFGHANISTAN)
