RAWA stands for Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan. It's a womens group dedicated to fighting the Taliban and fundamentalism. They take their lives in their hands smuggling medications into Afghanistan, educating females(education is forbidden to females over 12yrs of age.), and documenting the atrocities perpetrated by the Taliban. Some have been executed for these "crimes". Some of the pictures they've obtained are horrifying. The stories told by the women are heart-rending. There is a petition declaring opposition to the Taliban that I encourage everyone to sign. They also have t-shirts, coffee mugs, etc., to help finance their struggle. Please, at least take a look at the site. These courageous women deserve all the help they can get.
