Women – Afghanistan


McClatchy has this interesting piece about the situation for women in Afghanistan.  From my readings the article refers to Pashtun women.  The Pashtuns live in the southern two-thirds of Afghanistan. 

Cities in the north and west, such as Mazer-e-Sharif, Kunduz, Bamiyan and Herat, have a large population of Central Asians – Turkmen, Uzbeks and Tajiks – which are Shia Muslims. 

While both of these groups are Muslims, the Pashtuns are Sunni.
