Tajwar Kakar describes reports that came out of Afghanistan early after the war began as "overly optimistic" and "propagandistic." Why is the status of women in Afghanistan so important to the Western world? What value would propaganda about their new status have and whose interest would it serve?
Nutt does not describe the camps in Peshawar in glowing terms. Why would Afghan women choose the refugee camps over their homes? If life is so hard in Peshawar, what do they fear from their homeland? What is the meaning of refuge for these women?
Nutt interviews several young women. Some are optimistic and some are considerably less so. Some come across as very sure of themselves and some seem fearful. What is especially important about the opinions of young women? Are the risks for younger women greater in the new Afghanistan?
Canada recently made substantive changes to its refugee legislation. The above video focuses on the effects of Bill C-31 on child refugees.
