This is a society that is being pulled, kicking and screaming, out of the dark ages. It's a feudal system, essentially, and illustrates just what went wrong with the Muslim world about 1200-1400 AD.

I personally think the women should set their husbands or male relatives on fire, in most of these cases.

Afghanistan passes 'barbaric' law diminishing women's rightsRehashed legislation allows husbands to deny wives food if they fail to obey sexual demands
Afghanistan has quietly passed a law permitting Shia men to deny their wives food and sustenance if they refuse to obey their husbands' sexual demands, despite international outrage over an earlier version of the legislation which President Hamid Karzai had promised to review.

The new final draft of the legislation also grants guardianship of children exclusively to their fathers and grandfathers, and requires women to get permission from their husbands to work.
What is wrong with those people? Those poor woman are nothing but slaves.

Wait, if the ubertraditional men can deny their presumably mostly homemaker wives food, then who the heck is doing the cooking?
