Elite Women Afghan Fighters – A Message to be used elsewhere?

Reuters, Weds April 11 featured an article “Elite female night raiders break down barriers in Afghanistan” (see which is also the photon source). The article explains how females are being trained to work along with their male counterparts in Afghanistan.

Today’s question is: could this story be used outside Afghanistan and if so;  for what purpose? 

Women are clearly repressed throughout the Middle East and elsewhere. If we were championing the message that woman are equal to men – where would that best play out or would it play out at all?
