Jezebel Misses the Big Picture

From Registan:

There’s nothing untrue in the article, and, unlike so many other journalists, Baker doesn’t condescend to the Afghan women she interviews. Yet, the cover photo and the article have generated a storm of controversy in the blogosphere, with Irin Carmon of Jezebel and Derrick Crowe of Return Good for Evil leading the criticism with long arguments against the TIME’s choices.

Very sad for her and admire her courage to pose for the worldwide magazine. I feel sick thinking this way of life, so to speak, have made many women suffered the unthinkable throughout the rule of Taliban.

Lady Noor - I agree - a dreadful way to live - but goes to prove that women are survivors and are not the weaker sex.
