Afifa Azim coordinator of the Afghan Women’s Network discusses the importance of gender equality as a security issue in her country.
Afifa Azim: We all want stability in peace but not had the peace at the prize of women’s rights. The—particularly consent about proposals for reconciliation and reintegration of the Taliban. Like everyone, we agree that a negotiated solution is needed.
We are told that women’s rights are a development issue, not a security issue but as we all know, in Afghanistan, women’s rights are part of what the fighting is all about. The fighting is about our vision of the future in society in which various aren’t functions have considerably divergent views on women and girls proper place in the society.
Fortunately, they have gone constitution and have gone government that is committed to women’s rights and so, as the international community. Women’s right in Afghanistan are part of the security solution. If we want a more stable productive society, it is impossible to achieve without educated women taking lead roles in political, social and economical life.
