While the media was fixated on the "teabaggers":

A crowd of about 1,000 attacked 200-300 Afghan women gathered to protest a law that would legalize spousal rape and restrict women's movements among the nation's Shiite population. While the women held up signs and chanted, “We want amendments to the law,” the crowd hurled stones and tried to break through police barriers.

From DPA:

As police tried to keep the two groups apart, a man picked up a stone and threw it at a schoolgirl, shouting at her, “You dog of the Westerners, go from here”.

And from AP:

"You are a dog! You are not a Shiite woman!" one man shouted to a young woman in a head scarf.

The woman, who held a banner reading "We don't want Taliban law," replied quietly: "This is my land and my people."

The demonstrators chose a risky spot to hold their protest — in front of the mosque of the legislation's main backer — and were easily outnumbered by supporters of the law. They said many women had been stopped on their way to the protest.
