By Fatima (an Afghan girl in Kabul) Part of our Blog Series AFGHAN WOMEN SPEAK: STORIES FROM INSIDE AFGHANISTAN Two years have elapsed since the Taliban regained power through a regrettable peace agreement brokered between the US special representative, Zalmay Khalilzad, and the Taliban. This agreement handed over the fate and destiny of our people to an ignorant and misogynistic force. It obliterated the progress and achievements our nation had painstakingly built over the past two decades. With a single stroke of a pen, we were catapulted centuries backward. Ever since, a nation haunted by four decades of instability and a fractured society...

Today, V-Day celebrates the life of Patricia Henry, who we affectionately knew as Miss Pat. Miss Pat was a community leader who, in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, sprang into action to help feed and care for her neighbors. Miss Pat exemplified the fierce love and tenacity that is New Orleans. Meeting Miss Pat inspired V-Day to celebrate its tenth anniversary – V TO THE TENTH – in New Orleans. V (formerly Eve Ensler) created a monologue about Miss Pat that was performed during the 10th Anniversary performance of The Vagina Monologues in the New Orleans Arena by Liz Mikel. Watch the...

I am an Afghan woman and my name is Dina (not real name). I would like to share with you a small part of Afghan families' sorrow under the Taliban. I was walking on the street when I noticed a little boy around 10 years old cleaning cars. He was very dirty, tired, sad and hopeless. I went up close and started a conversation. I asked, "What are you doing on the streets during school hours? You should be in school, at least it is open for boys. And why do you look so tired?"...
