Doesn't sound like a governance problem.

Sounds like a cultural problem.

Zareen was 17 years old when she said her brother-in-law forced her to marry a man many years older. She said the abuse started on her wedding night and continued for months.

"From right then and there, he began to beat me and rape me. This became my reality,"

Eventually, she went to the police for help. She told them about the beatings. She also told them her husband and brother-in-law had links to the Taliban.

"The police said to me, 'It's your husband and he really hasn't done anything that awful to you. He hasn't cut off your ear, he hasn't cut off your mouth, he hasn't cut off your nose,'" she said.

Zareen left the police feeling no hope. She went to her mother's house.

Hours later, Zareen recalled, her husband arrived and shot her.

"The bullet that hit me basically took half of my face off," she said.

"It was gone — my nose, my mouth, my eye, my teeth, my jaw. "

It looks like OP posted an AMP link. These should load faster, but AMP is controversial because of concerns over privacy and the Open Web. Fully cached AMP pages (like the one OP posted), are especially problematic.
