Remember the American woman who "founded" the Kabul Beauty School and wrote a book about how she tried to save Afghani women from the drab aesthetics of their country by tutoring them in American beauty standards? Well, the veracity of her account is being challenged by other American women who feel left out because Crazy Deb wrote them out of history (and out of profit and glory).
They are accusing her of lying by nipping and tucking a few details, such as the tiny fact that she was not the founder of the school but more its hijacker, for she apparently moved that lofty institution from the Afghan Women Ministry, where it originally was, to her house, a necessary move to make it a "for profit" institution. Not that the other women involved are in it for charity. One "consultant" was paid $ 70,000 over two years.
The women are also raising doubts about Deborah Rodriguez’s sob stories of abused Afghani women whom she saved. One such story is of a woman who lost her virginity, but was saved from disgrace by using a cloth stained with Rodriguez's blood on her wedding night (Afghani mothers probably would have used chicken blood to execute the scheme, but that's sooo primitive). The women are saying they don't remember any such women around. Rodrigueze counters with "I changed a few details to protect Afghani women." In other words, there is no way to verify her account because that would endanger Afghani women who would be either shamed or murdered. Now, who is so uncharitable as to want to do that to them!!
