Save us from the Taliban. But also from Judith Butler
Pakistani Bina Shah's splendid reply to the Californian philosopher who, in a controversial article in the Guardian, stated that 'the category of woman must be redefined' to include those who 'perceive themselves' as such. But Afghan women, says Shah, are oppressed precisely because of their actual female bodies.
