“We are the granddaughters of the witches you couldn’t burn” -Tish Thawer. What started as a Hawaiian grandmother’s facebook post on the loss of Hillary Clinton’s loss in the Presidential election, ignited a worldwide phenomenon that united all people of different colors, religion, and sexuality. Women’s March is a liberation that supports all women, no matter who they are. Despite feminism existing since the beginning of time, women have always gone through degradation and hate. Schools need to educate students about the liberation of women’s rights because it gives students the reason to join the advocation of women, the differences between feminists and feminazis, and provides a more in-depth view about intersectional feminism.
Operation Anaconda 's Operational Art and Design Operation Enduring Freedom and the counter-terrorism campaign set the stage for Operations across Afghanistan. Operation Anaconda was utterly different from all the wars the United States, had fought doctrinally. Operational art and design in conjunction with doctrine enabled leaders to adapt to a constantly changing operating environment. So how operational art and design decided the outcome of Operation Anaconda?

The protagonist Mariam is a poor villager who lives in a remote area in Afghanistan, in contrast to Laila who is a smart, educated daughter of a schoolteacher. Khaled Hosseini has an interesting way of portraying the two female protagonists. He discloses the tyranny and hostility that the Taliban enforce on women just because of their sex. A critic viewed the novel as ‘a powerful portrait of female suffering’ making the reader explicitly aware of the harsh environment Mariam and Laila had to tolerate. One review expressed that ‘Hosseini defends the rights of women to decide what to be in life’, this could show that Hosseini directed the novel to be in favor of feminist views.
Nafisi's book Reading Lolita in Tehran chronicles the experiences of author from the year 1978 to 1997, when she returned to Iran during the revolution (1978-1981) and lived and taught in the Islamic Republic of Iran until her departure in 1997. The act of writing this memoir, gives her an opportunity to tell her own story and the stories of her students in her own words, from her perspective. By doing this, she saves herself and her girls from falling into the trap of tyrannical regimes, who in order to rule the masses take away their histories and personal stories from them, imposing homogeneity, thus, making them irrelevant and insignificant. The book is centered around a private class comprising seven students, all of them female, chosen
Women fighting in the Revolution were denied recognition as soldiers, therefore losing all benefits: finally they were disbarred from the army in 1925, gaining chances to enter only as medical and nursing students till 1934, but not as fighting soldiers but as nurses, secretaries, and similar clerical occupations. Withal, historians such as Griffin (1993 in Baker, 2012) have identified strong female characters, both in novel and real life, in the revolutionary period who were strong presences and determined the course of history. Even if their names got lost at times. La Pintada, a character in Los de abajo novel by Mariano Azuela, represents these women who were not just following their men, but leading men and making the most of the so far unknown freedom women gained with the Revolution but would lose later on. La Pintada would represent women who would not comply with the control of society, the mujeres bravías who spoke up and did allow themselves to enjoy the same liberties men have.
I won’t bury another. Now if you don’t mind, I’m trying to listen’” (Hosseini 96). Her final act of heroism is going to jail to save her friend, Laila, and her two kids, Zalmai, and Aziza. She wanted to save them from getting executed because of the death of Rasheed. Mariam wanted to show her apologies for earlier in life when Laila first came and they showed their hatred for one
The reason Khaled Hosseini wrote A Thousand Splendid Suns was to tell the abuses that the people of Afghanistan, mostly women, had to endure. Hosseini shows the readers this by using the lives of Mariam and Laila. He made these women to help the reader understand the sadistic part of the world. Hosseini gives us a new lease on life, from the horrible lives these women had to live through. I would have liked to recommend A Thousand Splendid Suns to anyone, but because of such adult themes like abuse and murder I think it shouldn’t be given the faint of heart and to anyone younger than thirteen years old.
She portrays the distressed women arriving at “she thought was a comprehensive health care provider near her home in Columbus, Ohio”. When arriving the doctors told her not to abort her baby, causing her to land in a crisis pregnancy center. These non-profit organizations work to “obstruct women’s access to abortion”. Meaghan Winter utilizes this anecdote to shed light on a disheartening situation, opening the reader’s eyes to what is truly happening to women across the globe. She employ pathological appeal by emphasizing the corner many women are metaphorically jammed in,” when providers like Planned Parenthood are shut down” and how “they leave low-income women with few alternatives for reproductive and preventive health care”.
In this text, Abu-Lughod analyzes muslim women, their burqas, and their relation to the United States. Within the text, the United States seems to call for the “freeing” of Afghan women during the time of the war.

For some reason, Americans viewed the burqa and women of cover as individuals being forced to live this way. The United states was very quick to deem this article of dressing as an article that took away power from Afghan women.
Malala Yousafzai was shot by the Taliban and lived to tell the story. As the Taliban took over her home, the Swat Valley in Pakistan, they banned girls’ education (“Diary of a Pakistani Girl”). From a young age, Malala has been an advocate for education. She would sit in on meetings with her father, and discuss rights with his friends (Yousafzai and Lamb 139). Pettinger said in his short biography about Malala, “In 2009, she began writing an anonymous blog for the BBC expressing her views on education and life under the threat of the Taliban taking over her valley” (Pettinger).
