cut afternoon. their reason is that it's a big example for other. not how we're. going to reach him 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 south east 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 itself to run away which when you're coming from an area of the country where women are not seen on the streets alone 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 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 in that area they were furious they felt like she

brought shame upon had they got the support of parliament they got 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 you must go home you for shame on it and she said no if you send me back to that village there is not one that will hear my death cries kill me 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 and though 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 get real risk but she is trying to forge

in marriage to the victim's family. he kind of took on the whole world 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 and 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 already or a forced marriage. being met with a lot of hostility sometimes she can be ostracized by society that basically thinks that problem should be kept in the home and we also sometimes see women. until
4:35 am
recently a woman could be knocked out for having been rapes 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 life they both spend their way home and then being there as men drafted their husband traffic and then the way they stopped but we. need to realize that but up there mark bannerman. toward their back to their village. for their viewpoint their women organization report their. apartment up and up as much as a sponsor about that they get up to. thirty two and then back to go belly. up with

jungle law if this constitutionalist benefit photo was lost they put in practice otherwise they look like a waste of paper same we have our constitutional. freedom of speech event and initial house we didn't have and we don't have freedom of speech element to part of democracy we have one 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 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 at 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 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
4:38 am
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. i think it will be. 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 now we have to follow laws which apparently are up to protect women's rights so. then there limitation of those laws are in the hand of the word and the hand of the people think that there was a shot of the power so we need to change their mentality we need to change their point of us who are on the strike but still. not.
4:39 am
this to the. list of rights was the constitution of afghanistan is given for them because so we do not i will fly in afghanistan has been the laws but they're meant to properly we have a lot of warlords was could have been else we have organized criminals we have a lot of illegal groups they are the main causes sources all five using the woman right in afghanistan.
4:40 am
we have body. part of our states or on which all of them are protecting women strike. from islam is point of view in islamic law it isn't pretty good for women to work to study or to go into offices. yet you want islam does prevent some things for women only women cannot see. in the
4:41 am
middle of an assembly of men. furthermore women are obliged to wear the huge job. or themselves there aren't any problems. lastly women are not allowed to become judges on. the religion of islam doesn't allow women to undertake a role in which you have to give a judgments. these laws are respected so there aren't any problems.
4:42 am
it was not a military. contract with the unit of the huge contract. it was not the operation to secure and rebuild the devastated country. for its.
4:43 am
contract work in iraq. it was the campaign for making billions of dollars polymer it's reasonable. or did bills exceed one billion dollars iraq for sale. for profiteers.

for instance on t.v. dot com. download the official publication so choose your language stream quality and enjoy your favorite. t.v. is not required to watch all its all you need is your mobile device to watch r t any time. we need to teach the community that their rights are struggling but that today. i mean i think. that's all. well in afghanistan the majority of women married below the age of sixteen. if they don't have a right to a divorce they have the right to what's called
4:46 am
a separation it's really hard for them to get work as a man just needs to say to those three times and that's it he says he said to his wife the only one before now afghan women asking for divorce was the never even heard of to be on one of the long. days to women come to us and ask us to resolve marital issues. sometimes we succeed sometimes we do not and that 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 of sconce if she finds this it and she doesn't necessarily get access to her children this is will become and of the police. they ask some information about new patients that arrive to these people. around forty percent each current area and two to five years but you have suspected for
4:47 am
self-immolation and just the right. percentage or the name or mentally hide. a lot. of immolation. i mean. who. unfortunately. ninety nine percent young woman. chose what happened what has happened to you my husband often beats me when we
4:48 am
argue he who was hurt my husband. my husband what did he do diddley beat you 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 this hour and. just stop suicides it's this very rarely investigations certainly rarely criminal investigations after these cases take place the problem in afghanistan. because the economy can do some of some people. who are. too old to the. economy can. come. between the husband and wife and son. the. beef. problem then the women who are on the border and
4:49 am
so 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 they think of the literally billions of dollars that have been spent by the u.s. in that country. fifty billion dollars in economic aid has been spent on the reconstruction of the economic infrastructure and social fabric in afghanistan it's not as if there are sixty countries from the international community who manage them to go. in is where has all this money gone where has all of the help that was supposed to be going to women but the real problem is that you know one thousand afghan provinces in order to improve women situation they're in very often money returns to external advice or stab me. to
4:50 am
external freeway. it's always coming 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 rule of into. national 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 expenses for personnel abroad. 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 the aim of helping poor countries. capacity building would be built for the local
4:51 am
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 sharp camps project money up there were designed out of the country copy and paste it to the 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 wanted n.g.o.s and woke up to thank you for example there was a basher doest who was the minister of planning during the first karzai administration . and then she became a member of parliament but he didn't talk about it i mean that it down and a man who was much loved by the afghan population. as planning minister he
4:52 am
conducted resends as of the local nongovernmental organizations that would reason up in afghanistan since two thousand and nine. appeared in a lot of the twenty two hundred nongovernmental organizations including the census doest recommend just the removal of one thousand nine hundred of them to president karzai. so there must feel cooperation is a tangible problem in afghanistan. where you know you really think there aren't any control mechanisms for how money is invested inside the country. but i want them to understand homes and money that they give to their government is used . that they expect to be used in the right way was out of a ship or ship can't legally 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
4:53 am
is made up of the corrupted will or it's where the money will end up in the pockets i want a little bit about the international community has encouraged the corruption that affect our country today. hard to believe. that after spending you know house. hundreds of billion dollars and. afghanistan is the worst award for the rights of children afghanistan is. the second country from the down put there for the poverty afghanistan is the highest. in the world of. each fifteen minutes one woman dies. in maternal mortality because of lack of access to the clinic put
4:54 am
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 the suspect it as a woman has a human and not custom that has its half step classes or subhuman so that's all right but we need and what we fight for the. welfare of those of us.
