Marital rape law to be changed in Afghanistan

On Wednesday I wrote about women in Afghanistan protesting a new law that would severely limit their rights by legalizing marital rape, and making it illegal for women to work or go to school outside of their homes without the permission of their husbands.

Apparently, President Hamid Karzai has decided to change that law.

What do you think?

h/t Shakesville.
