Interesting factoid

Two of the ten worst countries for women are recipients of "liberation" by the US as part of its "war on terra": Afghanistan and Iraq. I remember in those heady early days of the "war on terra" how Afghanistan women would see their lives improve dramatically - instead, their lot in life seems strikingly like it was back during the Taliban. As for Iraq: well, literacy rates for women have plummeted and of course a large proportion of those who have been internally displaced are women.
