Frontline feminism

While feminists in the U.S. pursue an argument over whether one can vote for the man in our current presidential contest and still be a good feminist, women poll workers risked their lives in Pakistan to oversee an election in which women were threatened with death for voting. Women's turnout was exceptionally low in yesterday's national election in Pakistan.

Great piece in today's New York Times that features interviews with women poll workers in Peshawar, capital of the volatile Northwest Frontier Province (NWFP).
