Follow-up: Feminist Afghan Artist Forced into Hiding


This entire story has really caught the imagination of women around the world.  The bravery of this talented, courageous, creative woman lit up hope in the hearts of many women and feminist men.  Now, she has had to go to ground to protect herself.  Even though there will be those who say “well, she shouldn’t have done it in the first place”, progress is made by those who extend themselves beyond the normal bounds of society to the betterment of all.

I will be keeping up with this story, as best I can, so we all know what happens to this wonderful young woman.

    Sadly, I’m not surprised she’s had to go into hiding…I’m surprised something hasn’t happened to her already 😦 Keeping my fingers crossed for her!
