@katiecouric: Women in Afghanistan

It was one of the most gripping and disturbing images we've seen, a young woman named Aisha, on the cover of Time, a scar and large hole where her nose once was. She was dragged from her home by the Taliban, her nose and ears cut off with a knife, because she had fled her husband's abusive family.

The article has raised discussion and debate about what happens to any modest gains women have made in Afghanistan since 2001 if the U.S. were to withdraw, and how to persuade the Karzai government to commit to equality long after the war is over.

On this week's episode of @katiecouric, Katie talks to Time's managing editor Rick Stengel and Zama Coursen-Neff of Human Rights Watch.

If you have questions you'd like Katie to ask the guests, post them here, tweet them to @katiecouric, or post them on Katie's Facebook page.
