Kabul (BNA) Ignoring the women rights is not only violating the rights of a huge section of society in the community, but it could be considered a serious violation against humanity.
BNA social affairs analyst commenting on the issue writes recently conference under the title of Women, Peace, Achievements and Challenges was held by the ministry of foreign affairs. In the conference the role of women in the current events and developments in the country were discussed.
Mrs. Habiba Surabi the deputy of high peace council talking in the conference made it clear that although women constitute 12 members of the council, unfortunately they are not involved in decision makings but after adopting  the decisions the result declare for them.
It is not only the high peace council that talks about the poor role of women. There are many authoritative figures in institutions and departments who do not believe so much on women’s role in the community.
It should not be forgotten that in Afghan society, the first victims of war are women; beside they are living in the environment with severe restrictions and prejudices and deprived of education, while the constitution of the country has ratified the equality of gender, unfortunately this equality approved by constitution is not tangible in Afghan society.
The Afghan women and defenders of women’s rights in the country and the authorities and other dignitaries should know that just giving a symbolic part for women is not enough.
There are many organizations, organs and individuals who always talk about the observance of women’s rights and consider themselves as the patrons of women. They demonstrate their so called patronage by releasing reports, conducting research on women status in the society or increasing or decreasing of violations against women. But the women are not only suffering from physical abuses they are agonizing from various violations; they should be focused seriously and practically. The straggle against violation against women should not be used as a means for ensuring one’s own benefits or his or hers affiliates.  
Today, the women are the main victims of the fighting and insecurities, the widows who have lost their husbands in the imposed war, have bear the responsibility of raising, feeding and educating  their orphan children in very bad economic situation.  Due to old and inhumane traditions, the girls are deprive from going school in remote areas of the country and due to security reasons the girls’ schools are closed. In the family life, the parents mostly prefer the boys to the girls. They let their male children attend school but they prefer their daughters stay home. These are the most serious violations that the women sustain.
The Afghan people expect the state and the organs responsible for protection of the women’s rights should not use the matter as a means for their own objectives, but work honestly for ensuring women’s rights in the community.
The women in social, security, political and cultural lives have many demands that should meet honestly and practically in order to find their right place in the society.
