Kabul: A number of human rights activists in Turkey called on the international community to pay attention to women’s rights, particularly girls’ access to education, in Afghanistan.
At a gathering in Istanbul, Asifa Saba, a human rights defender said, “For how long will the problem of Afghan women continue like this?”
Meanwhile, the Islamic Emirate said that it had ensured the rights of women across the country, reported Tolo News.
“The women are included in a lot of government positions where they are needed and they continue their work. Some of them who are not provided with work, their salaries are being paid at their homes,” Islamic Emirate spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said.
This comes as the women’s rights defenders said that such gatherings should be attended by female activists fighting for their rights inside Afghanistan, reported Tolo news.
“The gathering, which took place in Ankara, will not bring any result and I am sure it was just at the level of a meeting. There has been no attention toward the situation of Afghanistan’s women,” said Zholia Parsa, a women’s rights defender.
