Afghan child brides...and Western feminists...

Why western feminists support the war in Afghanistan....Stephanie Sinclair travelled around rural Afghanistan photographing child brides in 2003. She returned with a series of moving, upsetting portraits of terrified adolescents born into a world of misogynistic duties and suicidal despair...
...Sinclair asked of a man who had just won someone's daughter in a bet. "Don't you think she's a little bit young ?" He replied: “Well, we have a saying out here that if she doesn't fall down when you hit her with your cap, she's old enough to marry.”

More, including narration of images by the photographer, here... and today from Cranmer...Some Muslim men hold literally to the exhortation of Sura 4:34, which speaks of the treatment of women: 'As those you fear may be rebellious, admonish, banish them to their couches, and beat them.'And Muslim women may indeed suffer such abuse if their hair, necks or faces are seen by men other than their family members...more here...

We are dealing with institionalised, rationalised, religiously condoned paedophilia here. There is no course but TOTAL opposition - are you LISTENING, Western feminists?

They will only listen if they're instructed to do so by their UN masters.
And, talking of the UN how is it that the magnificent document the UN Declaration of Human Rights isn't used by all groups to demand equality for women under sharia law ?
