Afghan school girl, she's about ready for marriage. Indecent. Afghanistan can't be considered civilized until they stop this.


The Afghan Girl

Sharbat Gula, the 'Afghan Girl'. Her iconic photo appeared on the cover of National Geographic in 1984. The image of her face, with a red scarf draped loosely over her head and with her piercing sea-green eyes staring directly into the camera, became a symbol both of the 1980s Afghan conflict and of the refugee situation worldwide. The image itself was named "the most recognized photograph" in the history of the magazine. She was finally found and rephotographed in 2002.
