Afghanistan’s economy spirals: For the first time, there are similar levels of food insecurity among urban households as drought-hit rural ones.
What we should be shocked about is the near-silence here in the United States from Vice President Kamala Harris and First Lady Jill Biden — arguably America’s most powerful women — I ask the former prosecutor Ms. Harris and the current professor Dr. Biden: Where are your outspoken voices on justice and education for the women and girls of Afghanistan?
