we see. many. wives who have been beaten who want to leave. and there is one story that was the worst story which is a girl who had been told 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 had tried to escape she had to be punished her husband then cut off and cut off her nose. there isn't
10:33 pm
a vogue. example. not to be housed we're broke. 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 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 herself to run away which when you're coming from an area of the country where women are not seen on the streets alone you imagine a girl she was now fourteen or fifteen making her way from the southeast of the country all the way to kabul and then she found shelter and she was lucky. that she then found that had husband's family rose up against a they called upon
10:34 pm
a lot of the tribal elders an area they were furious they felt like she brought shame upon her 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 to her you must go home you've brought shame on us and she said no if you send me back to that village there is not one bird 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 in 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 her back and there she might be a real risk but she is trying to forge
10:35 pm
a life. poorer 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 was it fair that america's armed forces. there using graphics there need be the racks those materials so. they have so there too. i was ten years old to the appearance made nearly enough gunmen knowing twenty to this man and his family were all labor's he promised my father to be money one of
10:36 pm
my children's father is my brother and my husband doesn't know it. about a woman she her five children. who are brought in to her. to marry me marry me out of money my fifteen barred sort of marry my one year old but otherwise who would kill you. how can she. get marya with 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 it's been for instance of rape or a mad. they'll be a traditional job growth 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 for the murder they'll take a girl from one family the perpetrators family and they'll give that guy. usually
10:37 pm
marriage to the victim's family. to the whole world until the 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 ready for a forced marriage option should be met with a lot of hostility sometimes she can be ostracized by society basically thinks the
10:38 pm
problem should be kept in the home and we also sometimes see women. until recently a woman could be knocked out for having been raped even the woman when they get raped they go to the gym instead to lessen their wives what they were going to. close in afghanistan or. really where are the rights of women to protect their worth to sister and what are they were managed to run away because of domestic violence they were not about to continue with that. kind of terrible lives they bought their way home and then been there as men drafted their husband traffic and then. they stopped but we. need to realize that both of them are better than. they're back to their village before they get to and their women organization before they get to an empty apartment the moment affairs
10:39 pm
which is a thought about the big get up if you. they turn them back to go belly and the well with a warlock. will come monday or stay. or give them the one for their husband. and the public place. each up their. forty five. at a public place in front of all the relatives. and you talk them work fine. six to six thousand dollar. debt to pay put your husband probably because. you put shame on the ledge and on the family name so they have to and maybe their ballots and pay the fine. punished by their bar. killing a woman that might use it for the war loss like killing a birth. we are out of your point where the concept of justice is still nonexistent
10:40 pm
. today we have jungle law if this constitutionalist benefit photo was lost they put in practice otherwise they look like a waste of paper same we have in our constitutional. freedom of speech even in the mission house we didn't have and we don't have freedom of speech element to part of democracy we have been our constitutional freedom for press more than four times to be that your analysis inside of the parliament. in itself proves the lies. which is sort of a dick or lies 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 shari'ah judge he didn't want to contemplate 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
10:41 pm
a crime in any case. and at a certain point the response was well she'll be hit with pebbles saying bellowed that i'm a. terrible. for example if women do not obey islamic law and where strange clothes and go out seducing poor 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 apparently are up to protect women's rights so. they're there and push up those laws are in the hands of the word. was a shell 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. not. this to
10:42 pm
the. list of rights was the constitution of our group has done is given for them because so we do not or will fly in afghanistan has been that laws but are meant to properly we have a lot of war lords water 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 right in afghanistan.
10:43 pm
we have. part of our status quo on which all of them are protecting women strike. from islam as point of view in islamic law really isn't a pretty good bit for women to work just study or to go into offices. yet but islam does prevent some things for women only women cannot see. in the
10:44 pm
middle of an assembly of men. furthermore women are obliged to wear the huge job. if they cover themselves there aren't any problems. lastly women are not allowed to become judges. much of. the religion of islam doesn't allow women to undertake a role in which you have to give our judgments. these laws are respected so there aren't any problems. you know sometimes you see a story and it seems so you think you understand it and then you glimpse something
10:45 pm
else you hear or see some other part of it and realized everything you thought. i'm tom harpur welcome to the big picture. we speak your language. or music programs and documentaries in spanish matters to you. a little tonnage of angles stories. for you here. is to try to teach spanish. visit. download the official. to choose your language stream quality. or
10:46 pm
your favorites from. now t.v. is not required to watch artsy all you need is your mobile device watch r t any time and i think. we need to teach the community that the rights that we are struggling with that today if i may think to copy let's not practice it that's all. to have well in afghanistan the majority of women in marriage 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 work as a man just needs to say divorce three times and that's it he says he said divorce from his wife to become only of one before now afghan women asking for divorce was and never even heard of the on going to follow along. i was through now
10:47 pm
a 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 us that she doesn't necessarily get access to her children this is to become and up the police have. some information about the new patient at arroyo to these people. around forty percent which burnt area and two to five years but you have suspected for some and will issue and just the right. percentage or the name or documentary.
10:48 pm
we have a lot of. self immolation. i mean. bishan who warned her. unfortunately. this. ninety million person young woman. chose what happened what does happen to you my husband often beats me when we argue he who will sort my husband. my husband what do you do did he beat you yes means to be chewed yes. every time that we are here every day yes
10:49 pm
it's unclear how many of these cases might actually have been killings or attacks by men this hour dressed up as it were a suicide it's this very rarely investigations certainly rarely criminal investigations after these cases take place the main problem in afghanistan. because of the economy condition of some people. not good it. is to hold to the. economy condition may come comp lacked. between the husband and wife and sometimes the other is not a thief to solve the problem 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
10:50 pm
about the women of. can a stand that a they open office is it would have gone citizen spend lots of money to learn that media think of the literally billions of dollars that have been spent by the u.s. in that country over fifty billion dollars in economic aid has been spent on the reconstruction of the economic infrastructure and social fabric in afghanistan is so much that there are sixty countries from the international community who manage them. in is where is all this money go and where has all of the help that was supposed to be going to women go in but a real problem is that no one in fast and their gang provinces in order to improve women situation there very often money returns to external advice or me. to external free. there's always coming from abroad that are very very small percentage of the total u.s.
10:51 pm
money for afghanistan is going to the women not just these you have to add also the role of international cooperation there was 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 personality. and most of the money ends up in the pockets 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 group ability for the local population like the one the punji a foundation built for it's we who then ran the project rather than forgot about it i think. it's shows that that many. shark camps praja.
10:52 pm
money afterward the sign out of the country copy and paste it into country with 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 elites who merely run of 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 ready and then she became a member of parliament. 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 result in the afghanistan since two thousand and one. opinion a lot of the twenty two hundred nongovernmental organizations including the census national doest
10:53 pm
recommended 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 monies invested inside the country if you can buy your home is that i want them to understand how the money that they give to their governments is used the lefkow are very well money that they expect to be used in the right way without question or she can literally money it 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 wool or it's where the money will end up in their pockets on their little about the international community has encouraged the corruption that affect our country today. hard to believe.
10:54 pm
that after spending you know. hundreds of billion dollars in 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 for the power to afghanistan is the highest. and the wall of maternal mortality that each fifteen minutes one woman dies from 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 respected as a permit has a human and not custom that has
