On August 8th, Time magazine ran a controversial cover photo of a disfigured Afghan woman accompanied by the headline “What Happens If We Leave Afghanistan.” (Cover and abridged article can be found here.) The editor of Time, Rick Stengel, explains that the image, headline and story are intended to lend emotional truth and insight into the lives of women in Afghanistan. He claims the piece is a neutral attempt to further the debate and is not intended to express a position on the US involvement in Afghanistan. For the critical reader interested in furthering the rights of women, these portrayals are misleading and need to be questioned.
