she was forced to do marriage at the age of forty and from somewhere she was getting a lot of abuse in this home and she was very unhappy and she found it in his up to run away which when you're coming from an area of the country where women are not seen on the streets alone imagine if she was now fourteen or fifteen making her way from the southeast of the country away to a couple and that she found shelter she was lucky. but she then found that had husband's family rose up against a they called upon a lot of the tribal elders that area they were furious they felt like she brought shame upon had they got the support of parliament they got the support of the minister of interior it's an indication of quite how conservative those views are even in the house of government and in the end this go face the president's office the minister of interior parliamentarians and they said to you must go home you for shame on it's and she said no if you send me back to that village there is not one that will hear my death cries kill me here kill me now i'd rather that than go back to this village so defiance was extraordinary this courage and

a girl so young and eventually the government backed down and they let her stay in the safe hands she's getting an education she's much happier now she may someday soon get a divorce she's been trying for several years to get a separation. and so i can't claim that she's yet happy she's still having to be very much protected because the husband's family frankly still want to kill her or at least take a back and there she might get real risk but she is trying to forge a life. poor families can't afford to have. girl children who can't work in the fields so there is. a tremendous economic push to marry you. daughter off at

hold with the kid there's a practice called bad which is the use of women and girls as compensation crimes so what you sometimes see happening if it's been for instance a rape or a mad. they'll be a traditional council a gathering of elders and one of the ways that they can try to resolve it's rather . punishing the perpetrator of the rape or the murder they'll take a girl from one family the perpetrators family and they'll give that girl usually in marriage to the victim's family. well you see how difficult it is to obtain justice because you are a woman it hurts you because you know that you can't do anything to change the situation and this is because society is in the hands of men and maddow has someone who at this point the concept of justice is. existant.
4:34 am
it's very hard for women particularly in conservative areas of the country to seek help and sadly if a young girl or a woman goes to the police complaining about something like to master violence already or a forced marriage. being met with a lot of hostility sometimes she can be ostracized by society basically thinks a problem should be kept in the home and we also sometimes see women. and until recently a woman could be knocked out for having been raped even though women when they get to rape they go to the gym instead to listen the a wide split them into their to their close in afghanistan or. really where the rights of women are protected their worth to sister and what they were managed to run away because of domestic violence they were nothing about to

4:36 am
you put shame on the ledge and the family name so they have to immediately lose their ballots and pay the fine that have been punished by their wives are. killing a woman that might use it for the war loss like killing a bird. we are out of your point where the concept of justice is still nonexistent . today we have jungle law if this constitutional benefit photo was lost they put that practice otherwise they look like a west for same we have in our constitutional. freedom of speech event and inishmaan house and we don't have freedom of speech element to part of them are we have one of our constitution our freedom for press more than four times they beat us your analysis inside of the parliament. itself proves the lies. which
4:37 am
is sort of an equal as that were in the beginning of parliament most of these parliamentarians making criminal forgive themselves because he had to look up once there was a discussion about the sentence of a woman who was to be stoned to death. being the shari'a judge he didn't want to contemplate that the woman could be at least symbolically stoned in the square not being hit but still insulted but he was told that it was still a crime in any case and at a certain point was the response was well should be hit with pebbles am biota i don't know who they will be. charitable. for example if women do not obey islamic law and aware strange clothes go out seducing per young people. especially those who don't have the possibility of getting married. you know that. in our opinion this is not the right behavior and no more
4:38 am
new theme now we have beautiful laws which appear to be all up to protect a woman's rights so bad as they have their limitations up those laws are in the hands off the word lots and the hands of the people who are so i think there was a shot of the power so we need to change down mentality we need to change their point of use to us on the strike but still. note. wish to the. rights was the constitution of our. is given for them because so we do not will fly. has been that laws but they're meant to properly we have a lot of war lords was could have been else we have organized criminals we have a lot of illegal groups they are the main causes influences all five using the woman rights in afghanistan.
4:39 am
we have. part of our states are on which all of them are protecting women strike.
4:40 am
from islam is point of view in islamic law it isn't pretty good for women to work just study or to go into offices. yet going to islam does prevent some things for women only women cannot see. it's in the middle of an assembly of men. furthermore women are obliged to wear the huge job. or if they cover themselves there aren't any problems. lastly women are not allowed to become judges and mme coming out of much from.
4:41 am
the religion of islam doesn't allow women to undertake a role in which you have to give our judgments. as these laws are respected so there aren't any problems. with. culture is that so much different and there's a huge musician finding the mark with the carnage continues in gaza and israel claims its own marmont of the gazans using self-defense at the same time denying the palestinians. to move into the future to look the world pass you by as the best and brightest take minds gather in moscow some came to work while others came to play to get up close and personal with

4:44 am
we need to teach the community that the rights that we are struggling with that
4:45 am
today is anything to copy what's not packed with it that's all what gave to have most in afghanistan the majority of women in marriage below the legal age of sixteen and if they don't have a right to a divorce they have the right to what's called a separation it's really hard for them to get there is a man just needs to say divorce three times and that's it he says he said divorce from his wife the noise of one before now an afghan woman asking for a divorce was never even heard of to be on one of a long long want to be out through our days the women come to us to ask us to resolve marital issues. sometimes we succeed sometimes we do not. point a couple gets divorced but we don't want anything to do with those women for women it's a long hard struggle to get a separation and one of the major obstacles that she finds this it and she doesn't
4:46 am
necessarily get access to her children this is to become and up to police. they ask some information about new patients that arroyo to these people. around forty percent which burnt area and two to five years but you have suspected for self-immolation and just the right. percentage or the name or documentary fight. in malaysia. i mean. boucher who warned her. unfortunately. this.
4:47 am
young woman. chosen what happened what has happened to you my husband often beats me when we argue he who was hurt my husband. my husband what did he do did he beat you yes. yes. every time that we are here every day yes it's unclear how many of these cases might actually have been killings are attacks by men that are dressed up as it were a suicide it's this very rarely investigations certainly rarely criminal investigations after these cases take place the men problem in afghanistan. because of the economy condition of some people. who are.
4:48 am
too old to the. economy. may come conflict. between husband and wife and sometimes the other is not a thief to solve their problems then there were men who are on the body and self immolation you will hear people in the obama administration talking about how much they care about the women of afghanistan it's not true they don't care about the women of afghanistan that a they open office is going to have gang citizen spend lots of money to london media they think of the literally billions of dollars that have been spent by the u.s. in that country to my lap fifty billion dollars in economic aid has been spent on the. reconstruction of the economic infrastructure and social fabric in afghanistan . there are sixty countries from the international community who manage them.
4:49 am
in is where is all this money go and where has all of the help that was supposed to be going to women go and the real problem is that no one invests in their gang provinces in order to improve women situation there very often money returns to external advisors is there any. external free will this always comes from abroad that are very very small percentage of the total u.s. money for afghanistan is going to the women to do this you have to add also the role of international cooperation there is a study by oxfam from about two years ago that said that all of the money meant for reconstruction forty percent of it returns to sender through the expenses for personnel a brunette. and most of the money ends up in the pockets
4:50 am
of those who sent the money in the first place. this is upsetting for us because this money comes from people who live in foreign countries money that these people have worked hard to earn and they have given money to their governments with a move helping poor countries. capacity building would be built for the local population like the one the pangea foundation built for its women who then ran the project rather than forgot about it i think our lady it's shows that that many spent and sharp camps project money. out of the country. to the country with no sustainability no impact as much has been expected they have to be careful about the afghans that they support you know are they. afghans that really have the ability to be social changes or are they highly westernized
4:51 am
elites who merely wanted n.g.o.s and welcome the world to other thank you for example there was a basher doest who was the minister of planning during the first karzai administration that really got a guy. and then she became a member of parliament even talk about it i mean that it down and a man who was much loved by the afghan population. as planning minister he conducted resends us of the local nongovernmental organizations that would reason up in afghanistan since two thousand and one. opinion a lot of the twenty eight hundred nongovernmental organizations including the census. commanders the removal of one thousand nine hundred of them to president karzai. so they must feel cooperation is a tangible problem in afghanistan and you know and i think there aren't any control mechanisms for how money is invested inside the country. by release i want them to understand how the money that they give to their governments is used the level are
4:52 am
very well money that they expect to be used in the right way without which can literally money that arrives and then passes through the government manages the reconstruction work. and the work of the local nongovernmental organizations so it is clear that if the majority of the government is made up of the corrupt it will or it's where the money will end up in their pockets on their little about the international community has encouraged the corruption that effect our country today . hard to believe. that after spending you know. hundred billion dollars and afghanistan is still going to stand as the warst and the award for the rights of the children afghanistan as. the second country from the down put there
4:53 am
for the power to afghanistan is the highest. and the award of. each fifteen minutes one woman dies. in my turn maternity because of lack of access to the clinic what a lot of money has arrived in afghanistan to improve the situation of women but i don't think it has brought many improvements have. expectation that to be the suspect it has a permit has a human and not custom that has its separate classes. so that's all right but we need and what we fight for the. welfare of those of us.
