Call Mavis Leno - - yes - wife of Jay. Seriously!
She has been campaigning for women's rights in Afghan and Iraq for decades. Get involved.
Remember When "W" Stood for Women? Calling Mavis Leno...
The women of Iraq are under siege, raked with bullets for going to work, beaten for not wearing socks, kidnapped and not rescued if those who take
them don't ask for ransom because it's assumed they've been raped and therefore deserve to be killed. Generally I steer clear of the overused word
"shocking," but that's what the situation is, as this Observer article details. Please read and circulate, and after that, call Mavis Leno. Sounds
like a joke, but before the invasion of Afghanistan, she was the only person in the US lobbying on behalf of women under the Taliban, and she was
having some success.
