there are abusive husband there is a one story that was the worst story which is a girl who had been sold off by her family and she was beaten by the older man who she was forced to marry and she tried to escape and they caught her and brought her back and because she tried to escape she had to be punished her husband then cut off for years and cut off her nose the reason of the. example of one either. marc hauser. i'll tell you a story of a young woman i met i find inspiring i'm not going to promise a happy outcome but at least it was an inspiring story she was a young woman who was forced into marriage in a very conservative part of the country in the southeast she was forced into marriage at the age of around thirteen 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 that she was now fourteen or fifteen making her way from the southeast of the country all the way to kabul and that she found shelter and she was lucky. that she then found that had husband's family rose up against a they called upon a lot of the tribal elders an area they were furious they felt like she brought shame upon have they got the support of parliament they got the support of the minister of interior is an indication of quite how conservative those views are even in the heart of government and in the end this girl faced the president's office the minister of interior parliamentarians and they said you must go home 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 at least take her 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 your daughter off at a very very young age sometimes as young as ten or whatever that america's armed
forces. they're using graphics we need these drugs those materials so. they have to so they're through. i was ten years old to let parents maybe larry enough gunmen know in twenty two this man and his family were all in neighborhoods he promised my father to be money not one of my children's father is my brother and my husband doesn't know it we have important about. woman she her car children are. brought out of her. to marry me marry me automatically my fifteen barred sort of marry my one year school but otherwise we will kill you. how can she. get market work a wife hold with a 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 there's been for instance of rape or a matter. they'll be a traditional council a gathering of altus and one of the ways that they can try to result states is rather than. 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. and i hold until both of them well you see how difficult it is to obtain justice because you are a woman it hurts you because you know that you can do anything to change the situation if you will and this is because society is in the hands of men and maddow has someone who at this point the concept of justice is still nonexistent in court . it's very hard for
women particularly 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 or rape or a forced marriage. being met with a lot of hostility sometimes she can be ostracized by society basically thinks the problem should be kept in the home and we also sometimes see women. until recently a woman could be knocked out for having been grapes even the woman when they get they go to the gym instead to lessen their wives but then when they did their close in afghanistan or. really where are the rights of women are protected they want to sit there and what are they were managed to run away because of domestic violence they were nothing about to continue with that. kind of terrible
lives they bought their way home and then they get as many dresses that has been trafficked and then. they stopped but we. need to realize that what up there mark bannerman and that in turn them back to their village before they get two hundred women organization before they get to an empty apartment up and up as much as a sponsor about the big get up to. thirty two and then back to go belly. up with a warlord with a powerful. come monday or stay. or give them the hands of their husband. on the public place. on each up then take that forty five. at a public place in front of all the relatives. and the stuff they were crying i like the six thousand dollar. debt to pay put their husband probably because.
you put shame on the ledge and on the family name so they have to and maybe they were late and paid the fine. punished by their. killing the one that might use it for the war lost 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 constitutionalist benefit photo was lost they put the practice otherwise they look like a waste of paper same we have had our constitutional. freedom of speech event and inishmaan house we didn't have and we don't have freedom of speech element to part of the market see we have been of our constitution our freedom for press more than four times they beat your analysis inside of the parliament. in itself proves the lies. which is sort of i did call us that were in the beginning
of parliament most of these parliamentarians making criminal folk of themselves know it because you had to look up once there was a discussion about the sentence of a woman who was to be stoned to death. being the sharia 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 had with pebbles same biota so i don't know. they will be. charitable. for example if women do not obey islamic law and where strange clothes and go out seducing per young people. especially those who don't have the possibility of getting married. in our opinion this is not the right behavior and no more new
theme now we have to follow laws which appear in their protect rights so. then their limitation of those laws are the hand-off the word and the. think that there was a shot of the power so we need to change them and we need to change their point of us who are on the strike but still. rights was the constitution of our group has done is given for them because so we do not will fly in afghanistan has been that laws but human to properly we have a lot of warlords water could have been else we have organized criminals we have a lot of illegal groups they are the main causes influences all for abusing the woman right in afghanistan.
from islam his point of view in islamic law it isn't rebutted for women to work just study or to go into offices. you know. yet what islam does prevent some things for women only women can. said to in the middle of an assembly of men. furthermore women are obliged to wear the huge job. of themselves there aren't any problems. women are not allowed to become judges. much of. the religion of islam doesn't allow women to undertake
bright. moon and bounce from fans to pressure these. nice clean stunts on t.v. don't. we need to teach that community that. struggling with that today. well in afghanistan the majority of women married below the legal age of sixteen. 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 where is a man just needs to say divorce three times and that's it he says he said to his
wife. who are now afghan women asking for divorce was the never even heard of. now a days the women come to us and 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 causes. she finds this it and she doesn't necessarily get access to her children this is the the command of the police. they ask some information about new patients that arrive to these people. around forty percent each burnt area and two to five years but you have suspected for self-immolation and just the right. percentage or the name or the comment required.
yes means to be chewed yes. every time that we are here every day yes it's unclear how many of these cases might actually have been killings or attacks by men that are dressed up as it were suicides it's this very rarely investigations sadly rarely criminal investigations after these cases take place the men problem in afghanistan. because of the economy conditions. some people. who are. too old to. come. between war and some. of the other problem they're the women who are on the board. of militia 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 can see it isn't spend lots of money to learn the media think of the literally billions of dollars that have been spent by the us in that country. 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. in is where has all this money go and where has all of the help that was supposed to be going to women but the real problem is that no one in fasts and their gang province's in order to improve women situation they're in very often money returns to external advisory me. to external free. there's always coming from
abroad that are very very small percentage of the total us money for afghanistan is going to the women not just these you have to add also the rule 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 its returns to send through the expenses for personnel would prove that. big. and most of the money ends up in the pockets of those who send them 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 the aim of 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 of
its shows that that money spent and shark camps project money there were designed out of the country copy and paste it into country but no sustainability no impact as much as we would expect it 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. who merely running n.g.o.s and welcome to other thank you for example there are basher doest who was the minister of planning during the first karzai administration got a guy. and then she became a member of parliament didn't talk about it i mean that it out and a man who was much loved by the afghan population. as planning minister she conducted resends as of the local nongovernmental organizations that would reason
up in afghanistan since two thousand and nine and appeared in a lot of the twenty two hundred nongovernmental organizations including the census national doest recommend 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 me so i want them turned. stand home the money that they give to their government is used. any that they expect to be used in the right way was out of the shit washington can literally money at 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 corrupted towards where the money will end up and they have pockets around
a little more about the international community has encouraged the corruption that affect our country today. hard to believe. that after spending you know. hundred billion dollars in afghanistan. afghanistan as the war and the award for the rights of the children afghanistan is. the second country from the down put there for the power to afghanistan is the highest. and the war of. each fifteen minutes one woman dies. in maternal mortality because of lack of access to the clinic quite a lot of money has arrived in afghanistan to improve the situation of women but i don't think it has brought many improvements. expectation that to be
