Afghan marriage far worse than chattel slavery

The predicament of the Afghan bride of today is far, far worse than that of antebellum chattel slaves. Young Afghan women and underage girls are given in marriage without their consent. The husband selected for them may be many decades older, and may already have one or more wives. Arranged marriages are all too often consanguinous, leading to genetic damage among the descendants. And don’t get me started on the burqa, honor killings, or female genital mutilation.

Shari’a law was written into the Afghan constitution, and it happened on our watch. Inexcusable.
