The Taliban began in response to the rape and prostitution of Afghan women by arms & druglords. They saved women.
What exactly would ''womens rights'' entail in Afghanistan anyway? Should Afghan women attend non-existent colleges and marry imaginary men who sell insurance and live in fictitious suburbs? Should they dress up in Halloween costumes and hold ''Slut walks'' across mountain trails? Should they sit around and nurse emotional hostilities and meet other women at a pretend ''Cheesecake Factory'' and complain about being unhappy?
Saying Afghan women need ''rights'' is sort of like saying a Pashtun pastoralist or poppy farmer needs a laptop and an iphone.
Everyone forgets Najibullah hung on very comfortable for three years post Soviet withdrawal and only dropped because the Soviets ran out of cash to support them. Despite what Ango The Self Hating Western Muslim might say, there's no great desire in Afghan for misognyist theocracy to return. People don't want to live like West Queen Street West but women also don't want to be chattels.
