The Breadwinner

I am currently reading the book The Breadwinner. In the book Afghanistan is at war with Taliban. During the war the women cannot go outside without a man with them. I f they are caught without outside without a man they can be arrested. What do you think of the rights that the women are being unprivelegded of? Also in the book Parvana and her mother get beaten by soldiers trying to rescue Parvana's dad from the prison he was taken to. Do you think it is right that Parvana and her mother are being beaten by the soldiers even though they not even supposed to be outside? I think that Afghanistan will pull through and win the war though, and the women will earn their rights to go outside as they choose.
