This thesis explores how education reform programs in Afghanistan particularly those geared toward women, would better serve the long-term goals of reconstruction, if the educational goals of such programs moved beyond basic literacy. Taking into account the historical, cultural, and religious challenges faced by agencies engaging in reconstruction efforts, this thesis argues that small-scale, culturally-relevant programs are the best way to ensure long-term progress for women's rights in Afghanistan.
