Afghan women are no strangers to gender-based violence. Now, officials and rights groups have noticed an alarming surge in these incidents, with crimes against women becoming more frequent - and more savage.

The ravages of war, the dysfunction brought upon families are some of the unheard stories! Thanks - sadly noted.

The war in Afganistan is a waste of lives and money. No country ever changes the place.

No surprise there! Women and children ALWAYS suffer when men are frustrated! "The religion of peace" doesn't do anything to discourage it, either.

In Afghanistan, even when a "war" is not raging ... the men, the "clergy", the "religion" of "peace" -- RAGES AGAINST THE WOMEN & GIRLS!

They don't need a "reason" -- the excuse of "religion" is enough for them! Truly SAD!

Thanks Cal. So many males for so many thousands of years, have gauged their "man-hood", masculinity, by how they control women, and most other resources. After all, isn't this one of the "laws" they have been taught through religions and many culture structures? Those men who are severely abusing females are terrified down their very cores and egos, they could lose control of the 4th most important resource of survival.

Sickening. Islam is one of the worst abusers of women in the world.

There is probably no fate worse in the world than to be a Muslim woman.
Somehow, it makes them better people.
The abusive men, on the other hand, become more and more depraved and evil.
It would be healthier if they shared the goodness and the evil equally between them.

These are shocking crimes no matter who perpetrates them, no matter what country they are committed in. Why do the Afghan Government and the international community not do more to prevernt these horrors? Women are the obvious victims, but these crimes diminish everyone involved.

Violence against Afganistan women is on the rise. Violence against Egyptian women is on the rise. Violence against Gaza women is on the rise. Any pattern here?

I thank my lucky star everyday for not having been born a muslim woman.
Those sadist, women hating pri-cks shoule all be castrated.
The world would be a better place if they were not allowed to reproduce.

This is horrendous, remember how we in US were told one of the reasons we were going into Afghanistan was to "liberate" Afghani women from brutal Taliban?
Violence against women always goes up in times of chaos and war. It is sad, but also remember that women homicide victims in US percentage wise are usually killed by husband or partner. Women have been enslaved and sold since the beginning of patriarchy

Kate, you are right. One of the reason US Army went to Afganistan was to liberate Afgani women from Taliban. The second reason was to liberate Afgani men from Taliban.

Well, these are the tasks which can be achieved only with the goodwill of the population.
