WAMU 88.5 : The Diane Rehm Show

Ending Violence Against Women Worldwide

The brutal execution by the Afghan Taliban of a married woman falsely accused of adultery has sparked international outrage. The killing of the 22-year-old also heightened concern for Afghan women after the U.S. ends its combat mission. Some women's advocates were encouraged by protests this week in Kabul against the execution, calling the reaction evidence of progress.

Diane and her guests will talk about efforts to empower women and change cultural attitudes among men and boys.
