Afghan women shout slogans during a demonstration at the national Parliament compound in Kabul, Afghanistan, Wednesday morning, Apr. 15, 2009. Around 200 women gathered for the demonstration, then marched to Parliament to protest the Shia Personal Status Law, which was signed by Afghan President Hamid Karzai last month. Critics and women's activists say the law legalizes marital rape and violates women's basic human rights.
