The Forgotten Women of Afghanistan

In Forgotten War, Forgotten Progress, Athena at Terrorism Unveiled reminds those willing to remember just how much progress has been made in Afghanistan. It is sad commentary that the first elected Afghani Parliament in 30 years was just sworn in with less American fanfare than a Chicago Cubs box score in mid-June.

Is it not worthy of more than that, especially considering 25% of that new parliament consists of elected women?

Are these 87 women not truly more deserving of Time's Person(s) of the Year designation? One wonders if they were even on the long list, let alone the short one. (Bono?)

Go see Athena and permit yourself to be reminded of the breadth and scope of true progress.
