You may have heard of the Afghan woman who was raped by her cousin's husband. When her pregnancy revealed the assault, she was jailed for "forced adultery" for two years, later increased to 12 years, and her attacker was jailed for seven years. She was offered release if she would marry her attacker, and she agreed in order that her daughter would have a mother. (If released otherwise, she would likely become the victim of an honor killing, leaving the child motherless.) After international outrage, President Karzai pardoned her, and she was reportedly released on December 14, 2011, with no requirement of marriage. I have not been able to find out what has happened to her since then.
My summary above comes from reading numerous online reports about this woman, known only as Gulnaz. The wikipedia entry for her name lists a good number of sources. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gulnaz
I wonder if anyone can help me find out what has happened since her December 14 release. I became interested when my daughter was asked to do a high school report on the status of women in Afghanistan, related to the book "Bookseller of Kabul." But aside from that reason, I am very curious about her fate. Some had said that she might leave the country, so perhaps she has gone into hiding somewhere. I would appreciate any information anyone can find on this sad (but not rare) case.
