Women of Afghanistan Making Steady Progress

Women are making steady progress in Afghanistan. For me this is an incredible achievement of President Bush's foreign policy. Women's rights are a real, tangible benefit of the democratization of the Middle East.

U.S. first lady Laura Bush (L) joins a roundtable with students and teachers while visiting the Women's Teachers' Training Institute at the Ministry of Higher Education at Kabul University in Afghanistan today. Bush visited Afghanistan for the first time to promote education for women, which was forbidden by the Taliban government overthrown by U.S.-led forces three years ago.
