PLEASE SEE THE QUESTIONS TO ANSWER: THINKING MORE DEEPLY 1. What new insights about Afghanistan did this film give you? Has seeing this film made you aware of events and conditions you did not know about? Give an example. 2. Why do you think Hamid Karzai has chosen to work closely with warlords who were responsible for killing and atrocities during Afghans civil war? Why would he allow them to have such prominent positions in the peace jirga? 3. Do you think the decision that the Afghan Womens Network (AWN) made to support Karzai was the right one? Did they have a real choice? Why or why not? 4. In some countries experiencing conflict and civil rights abuses, women have banded together to demonstrate against these conditions through marches, sit-ins, and other nonviolent actions, and they have achieved a certain level of success in attaining their demands. Would such an approach work in Afghanistan? Or should women continue to go through official, established channels to secure their rights? 5. Ambassador Eikenberry asked AWN representatives to “inspire us,” and his wife, Ching Eikenberry, advised them to avoid using a negative approach. What were your thoughts when you heard their remarks? Do you agree with their advice? 6. Palwasha Hassans presentation at the donors conference fell on deaf ears. Why didnt the conference stipulate that women should take part in rebuilding Afghanistan? What would it mean to have women involved in healing the fractured nation? 7. Secretary of State Clinton has made numerous statements in support of womens rights in Afghanistan. When the U.S. pulls its troops out of the country, can the U.S. still support the rights of women there? How would that be possible? 8. Should a society have rules about gender roles? Why or why not? 9. Why is it important for women to be involved in a countrys political life? How does womens involvement benefit men? 10. What recourse does the international communitygovernments as well as NGOshave in dealing with the Taliban? Do you see any possible ways to achieve an effective compromise that doesnt sacrifice womens rights? 11. What is your assessment of the AWNs prospects for gaining the full participation of women in Afghanistans public life?
