Afghan Women Protest Law Legalizing Rape

Ad Feedback

Afghan president Hamid Karzai says a controversial law that restricts women's freedom will be changed.

Hundreds of Afghan women recently took to the streets to protest the law.

It essentially legalizes rape within marriage and restricts the rights of wives in Afghanistan.

The women were confronted by a large group of men calling them "dogs" and "slaves of the Christians."

Some men even threw stones at the women.

Karzai signed the controversial law in March but was under pressure to review it after receiving widespread condemnation.
