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's and she said no if you send me back to that village there is no 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 i'll eventually the government backed down and they let her stay in a safe house 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 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 but america's armed forces. are using growth. grabbed this maturity of. their house so that through. this i was ten years old to believe parents made larry an afghan men knowing twenty two this man and his family were all libras he promised my father to be money not one of my children's father is my brother and my husband doesn't know it. about
a woman she her car of children. her brother her. commodity me marry me go to marty my protein bar go to marry my one year old boy otherwise we will kill you. how can she. get money you work or why you hold with a kid there's a practice called bad which is the use of women and girls as compensation for crimes so what you sometimes see happening if it's been for instance a rape or a motor they'll be a traditional jerk or the council is gathering about us and one of the ways that they can try to resolve its 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.
or 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'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 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 option should be met with a lot of hostility sometimes she can be ostracized by society that basically thinks the problem should be kept in the home and we also sometimes see women shop i tell recently a woman could be locked up for having been raped even though. women when they get
raped they go to the gym and it's good to listen to watch what they're going to there to the latest in afghanistan or maybe really where are the rights of women or the church they want to sit and what to stand were managed to run away because of the mistake when they were not about to continue with that. in a terrible life they both spend their way home and then they were asked men dresses the husband dresses and then the way they suspect he. will eat you alive that both of them are women and then he turned their back to their village before they disowned him and he's been an organization before they turned him to the possum and the farm enough as witches response about that to get up this issue they turned their back to the village and the well i guess with the water was a powerful. monday. before gift in the hands of the husband
like them on the public place. and each of them subject it forty five flashing in a public place in front of all religion. and he kept them were flying. a quote the six thousand dollars that family to pay put there had been probably because. death point of view but that's them put shame on the religion and on the family name so they have to an a.b.c. lose their ballots and pay the fine just that the punished by death was botched. killing the woman that's much easier for the war lost like killing a bird. we were at a point where the concept of justice is still nonexistent. today we have jungle law if this constitutionalist benefit for. last they put the
practice i don't know why they look like a west or same we have in our constitutional. freedom of speech event in the mission house we didn't have and we don't have freedom of speech element to part of them or we haven't have our constitution our 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 medical errors that were in the beginning of parliament most of these parliamentarians making amnesty law criminal themselves nor because you had to look at once there was a discussion about the sentence of a woman who was to be stoned to death for 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 because 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 then by a lot of. good will be. charitable. for
example if women do not obey islamic law and where 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 now we have to follow laws which apparently are up there protect women's rights so. they're there for them and push up those laws are the hand-off there were lots. of think that there was a shot of the power so we need to change them and quality we need to change their point of view is lost on the strike but still. this to the. list of rights was the constitution of our greatest on is given for them because so we do not or will fly in afghanistan has been that laws
we have. you part of our status quo on which all of them are protecting women strike. from its lowest point of view in islamic law it isn't pretty bad for women to work to study or to go into offices. yet here's what islam does prevent some things for women only women cannot. said to 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 him could match him across all of the ground by the religion of islam doesn't allow women to undertake a role in which you have to give our judgments. it is these laws are respected so there aren't any problems. culture is that so much a lot of people at highbury all their little. difference of so-called war on drugs

we need to teach the community that the rights that we had struggling with that today if anything to copy let's not practice it that's all. gifts to have well in afghanistan the majority of women married 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 then only of one before now an afghan woman asking for divorce was and never even heard of her be on one of a long long committed people 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 us that she doesn't
necessarily get access to her children this is to become and up to 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 self-immolation and just the right. percentage or the name or mentoring. in malaysia. i mean. bishan who warned
her. unfortunately. this. young woman. what happened what has happened to you my husband often beats me when we argue he who also it's my husband. my husband what do you do did he beat you yes. yes. every time that we argue 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 so excited 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.
who are. too old to the. economy. may come conflict. between the husband and wife and sometimes there is not a beef to solve their problem then their women who are. already. 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 tough they open office is going to have gang citizens spend lots of money to learn the media and they think of the literally billions of dollars that have been spent by the u.s. in that country to my lappie war is fifty billion dollars in economic aid has been spent on the. reconstruction of the economic infrastructure and social fabric in
afghanistan itself there are sixty countries from the international community who manage them with. washington is where is all this money go and where has all of the help that was supposedly going to women go and buy the real problem is that no one in fast and they have gone provinces in order to improve women situation there very often money returns to external advice or me. to external free one that always comes from abroad that are very very small percentage of the total u.s. money for afghanistan is going to the women not just these 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
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 video it's shows that that money spent and shark attempts project money. out of the country copy and paste it into country with no sustainability no impact as much as we speak to 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 wrote in geo welcome 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 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 conducted resends as of the local nongovernmental organizations that would reason up in afghanistan since two thousand and one. opinion a lot of the twenty two 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 monies invested inside the country. by release i want them to
understand how the money that they give to their governments is used. well money that they expect to be used in the right way without which 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 will or it's where the money will end up in their pockets around their little international community has encouraged the corruption that effects our country today. hard to believe. that after spending you know. hundred billion dollars in afghanistan is still going to stand as the worst 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 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. expectation that to be respected as a women as a human i'm not cussing that has its have classes or subhuman so that's all right but we need and what we fight for the. welfare of those of us.
it was not the operation to secure and rebuild the devastated country caliber. taxpayers for its contract work in iraq. it was the campaign for making billions of dollars polymer. reasonable. bills exceed one billion dollars iraq for sale. for profiteers. the great russian. prevailing over hazards and a spare. to reenact an epic parade through paris. can they complete triumph. with people's admiration for two hundred.
