you have schools they have that i too would works with and the minister is one that woman is asian enjoins i'm sure i'm uncivil to say. many factories. in f.l. they would still do with two a leg and the universities because this is from. new york that no one respects lozier or not all one can. live on for
their own good for their protection of the earth or that he wrote above. i don't know because if women don't wear their headscarf they will be harassed raped injured and humiliated. told there is no law the gun is the law we have the woman in front of it we have the women in media we have the women in the universities we have the women in the government we have minister of state and you can imagine that this that the suspect that they had. put their wife they exchange a daughter but that duck just put their plan to have a funny duck and play with that right now. nine percent of. the math is good to university woman out of what it can buy into why go out of men. and really they do this is
so every two women they are independent economy independent they have some somebody this is maybe one or two person. more most of them when we say that the situation of women in afghanistan has improved you can only take into consideration places such as harrow to missouri sharif and kabul. in the provinces in the villages the situation hasn't changed on the summer that women are still victims of violence and rape.
good morning i'm laura bush and i'm delivering this week's radio address to kick off a worldwide effort to focus on the brutality against women and children. network and the regime in afghanistan the taliban. regime is now in retreat across much of the country and the people of afghanistan especially women are rejoicing afghan women are the bush administration with the issue of the oppression of women now women were oppressed a long time and you never heard anybody talk about it but when the u.s.
wanted to invade all the women so much the president. bush. said military. and women are no longer imprisoned in their home they can listen to music and teach their daughters without fear of punishment the fight against terrorism is also a fight for the rights and dignity of women the media talking to the whole country saying how we are going to liberate the women of afghanistan. can liberate their people can liberate. and you certainly can't do it through the barrel of a gun. unfortunately now that the recent permanent civil war that we were once again imprisoned by the fear. and things are going back where it somewhat. was when i was fourteen years old now i have six children.
are stuff that is twenty four my marriage was like like many at that marriage it wasn't forced marriages but that was ok and. i used to say that accidentally one has that this. is what is supposed to. he believes what mr right. this is a one of us and head out that has been has been stopped the stopped by by by knife because she has a right to you and i democrats young generation that want to play her all and today this command dust off a smile. wanted criminal means and the rest of afghanistan and his puppet of you know as well and and then they beat a knife to a stop not sure where the women in the thread due to the shaky situation within the
country many of them a journalist and many of them have been assassinated and therefore it has spread far too high a price to act the west woman who has been cult like a car in kandahar my john in kandahar. and nadia and jim and hid out. our much twenty five fearful journalists and couple. there are some end to violence something that didn't exist before unfortunately we were in the beat of the daily and the public mask. a number of. came together and that decided me. because i mean i went to that province and created the show and so now woman. that i know we have a protection mechanism there. she could go wide to. make huge for a woman so we cannot control over that woman and i would probably say.
you know what you have picked the native place and then ask if you know that needy that. you will give in to a good job but the god. and right now one of the things we can do is pressure our governments for afghan women to be at the table with any discussions about reconciliation any discussions around really incorporating the taliban back into the government because we believe. cannot truly prosper without the participation its population and that it construction.
only affected social change you can be. the afghans themselves afghan men and women and now you're working for me if i try to or for. college or for many leaderships and i'm stuck to teach women to be the leaders of the future. we should be going in and providing economic opportunities educational opportunities but it's alternately for the afghan people to determine how their
social progress is going to proceed. rights aren't given they have to be taken have got to stomach so you have asked me if men give women the right to drive a car to join the army or to fight with these other rights that must be taken by a woman who has to drive or get a degree book on a boy or women can do the same as men because women are capable jumper though it took the these are not rights that men give us but rights that we have to take what some have called a hold is bigger so we need to work with but the man to teach them and pounding that better they're right. about member and get family. because men are the decision making. men are the power. men are who can make change make a difference so if you do not work with me so we don't have this is if you go what
we're going to do good will like me tonight because you know what i mean us if you reason for. afghanistan is not like another. european country to have discovered leaks it encourage a woman far more about what rights and tell her that you have that's your right to have access to education to go to discover and it's going to look at it just in front of her door that the husband doesn't allow to the buy that i've been allowed or she could enjoy from a breeder it gets for me it's. them two don't go to school or university it's kind of the woman who could. it's a little bit like going out into the villages to convince people with regard to birth control what you've really got to do is you've got to get local people local religious leaders local social workers etc who are going to go out you can have
westerners going out and you can have westerners who are have a high profile. in that country because they deal with when the local people go out the local people say you're not here as afghans or as pakistanis are in the nations you're here because these american christian groups you see are trying to impose on us a social policy that we don't believe in in order to make us weaker you know so we'll have smaller families you know so we won't be as strong as we can be.
films that i produce some mainly about women's rights. should i tell stories about the problems that afghan women face in their lives when i do i make different types of films artistic educated documentaries also some adverts. in reality what i would like to do is work as much as possible for my country for my people because my people have many needs a hope for this reason i also make educated films films that can give them positive messages. as a big i was because she was famous. you
know i had seen her work. i knew who she was but i didn't know her and personality when i met her i was immediately taken by her character her work her personality. so we decided to get married as there was also this film was the first fell in head out soon. but. when but i cannot shooting at that time. in two thousand and two when the taliban in afghanistan i decided to mean i must make direct this feeling so it was difficult for me because nor did it nor you know family to. accept to have a doctor or have
a wife be activist to my fellow because they don't like. to be. in the movie and seen the woman one year i'll search for acting. the office house but now. i have the rights to produce what microfilm stright the ball to the present and another thing. i want to take the exhibition that you see here has fifty exhibits drawn by seven different artists six of these artists a man and one is a woman. again. and now i've been drawing carey catchier sport ten years i'm not an artist i have a degree in political sciences but i draw in relation to political topics so these particular drawings refer to the current political situation.
if nothing. more than all of them even in afghanistan that we didn't want here. it's. been mother figure. afghanistan has never had a caricature exit bishan before. it's the first time because obviously it is about works of critical said tire. and unfortunately their ability to accept criticism here in afghanistan most of all in the political field has notably decreased. computer. right now we have
a lot of women and favorite students which is true but noticed that we have a family of actor and activist and for me we have fair male musician. farewell. that's. moving ahead. my name is maria bashir and i'm the chief prosecutor of the herat province. i've had the position for about four years. and it's the first time in the history of ghana system that irresponsibility like this. has been given to her or that her. if you ask me if i'm happy to be born
a woman then i'll say yes even if i have to face many problems even if the situation is difficult and it takes a lot of effort in such a traditional society above all be no woman is being conscious of your own rights like my job is to follow criminals in the province and in fifteen districts of. the departments. that i manage has one hundred employees. of these one hundred employees down there women and the rest are all men i'm legally responsible i'm the one that coordinates and checks the work so they have to answer to me be capable of following through with their responsibilities and taking orders from you. so it's not easy to understand the courage of these women who put themselves out there and do their best every day. my wife
will be paid by as i want to work hard however. people yeah i want to head. at them my. i like it. i live in the kingma given my role in the responsibility that i have in my job my life is in danger because i have to deal with criminals day off to date. and for em to government groups it is unacceptable that a woman has such a responsible position. for this reason i am in danger and i have to move about always with an ass court and an armored car. unfortunately things have not changed very much for afghan women when you think of all the blood
that has been spilled from two thousand and one to now be able of it and take you over work but we achieved. in security. but to be achieved. poverty. one of the ways you can judge how the status of women is is looking at the issue. maternal mortality how many women die in childbirth. one out of five afghan women died in childbirth think it's one of the highest rates in the entire world it was under the taliban and it continues now. this is the picture of the woman and nineteen young girls nineteen sixty so one when they go. to school. and they see how they are free but even with the car five they waste
a lot and they are going to school and they're going to turn it on if they condition the women has been one of the reasons for military intervention in the country where she's on the market there are many women but the majority are women who have a political role many of them are linked to fundamentalist groups so i'm going to. i'm sure that there is a high number of women in the afghan parliament. twenty eight percent are women but many of these twenty eight percent belong to the norm you know sort of all their women as important delegates or appointed by the warlords or seniority that you send some of their women into government you know the person. and i thought today's women's point of view but i work in the news editor an office of radio much day and i present a show for women transmitted by the radio station our program talks about different subjects mostly accounts on the condition of women in herat and their activities.
are i started thinking when i was nine years old or fifty years my work has been to weave carpets no hope i have lived to long for six years i have three children two girls and one boy this is a particularly difficult period for us but that let's talk about the development of women in society i have complete is a number of cinema to graphic projects. because we have money to be a station money to argue a fair share. t.v. station and argue official and also a newspaper. or magazine. monthly. we have money and also a programme about women growth of oklahoma ok and that's why women and people know about their rights that we act and we had more been in nine hundred
which came on in coming. in really just that it is all the way in fragments woman there are problems that women face not only in hair out about in all of afghanistan . other problems are many for example in families they are victims of violence perpetrated by their fathers husbands and brothers rape cases is historic i'm not going to stop these dharma stick while it is four years old maybe two and half years old babies five year old babies twelve girls fourteen year old girl take it right. normally if they injure their wives the husband done to company them to hospitals their companies by the member of their families you know in afghanistan beating your wife beating your family beating your children isn't considered a crime. the police reports mainly regard physical violence.
right however i believe the majority of women i can say ninety nine percent suffer psychological violence but it isn't trip or to. the other day for example i saw a fifteen year old girl who was the second wife of a fifty five year old man. because here ninety nine point nine percent of all marriages are arranged. cheater she told us that from the day she had my her husband he has never taken care of or that he has only beaten her and that she can't make any decisions at all she was sick and she told us my husband doesn't want me to get better more. from woman in afghanistan with. a. break i get right in there has been.
