"This Mother's Day, Amnesty [International] is inviting you to write a message of solidarity for Afghan women. We'll put it on a kite -- kite flying is a popular pastime in Afghanistan -- and fly it during the NATO Summit in Chicago, May 20-21, where President Obama and Afghan President Karzai will be discussing Afghanistan's transition."
To President Obama and President Karzai meeting in Chicago on May 20, 2012 without a single Afghan woman at the table
I am shouting but you don’t answer—
One day you’ll look for me and I’ll be gone from this world.
Zarmina, a landai
The pay phone is ringing, ringing—
For love, yet another woman has set herself on fire.
