Afghanistan War on Wo_Rich.jpg

In this photo taken Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2013, an Afghan female tailor works at her home on the outskirts of Kabul, Afghanistan. Since July, several prominent women have been attacked in Afghanistan. Among them: two police officers who were killed in the south, an Indian author living in eastern Afghanistan who was killed years after her memoir about 1990s life under Taliban rule became a Bollywood film; and a senator who was wounded in an ambush. These and other attacks on female leaders in recent years have generally been blamed on the Taliban, though the Afghan militant group, mindful of cultural sensitivities, usually does not admit to targeting women.
