Violence on women; a national problem


_MG_1253 16/3/2013 – Reporter: Qiam Noori – The parliamentarian and women rights activist, Farkhunda Zahra Naderi says, one of the biggest concerns over the last decade was that, the violence on women issue was not a priority on Afghan government’s agenda.

The parliamentarian while talking in a Kabul press conference for celebrating the international women day, insists, fighting the women’s rights should be one of the national and core agenda of the next presidential elections candidates:

“The president Karzai has talked periodically on women’s rights and violence issues. But still the problem has not count as a national agenda.

We have 2014 head of us, and that means we have an election ahead. Thus, we must raise our voice louder and convey to the candidates to include the issue as one of their priorities.”

The conference held by coalition of democratic parties of Afghanistan.

At the same time, Ms. Naderi suggests that in a bid to reduce the violence on women the particular points should be noted:

  1. The women across the country must be come united, coordinated and mobilized
  2. The political parties should raise the men awareness regarding women rights
  3. The political parties should also increase public awareness regarding the EVAW law – 2009 confirmed presidential decree.

Liberalization movements of women with equality and justice slogans go back the 20th century in New York.

 After then, the movement becomes an international act.

The international women day celebrated for the first time by U.S women and men in 1909 AD.

The UN for the first time commemorated the international women day in 8 March of 1975 AD.

Since 1965 H.S Afghanistan is celebrating the women’s international day.
