EU Stresses Women Must Participate in Education

EU Stresses Women Must Participate in Education

KABUL - The European Union (EU) launched a one year nationwide campaign, promoting women in political and economic areas.
The EU officials in Afghanistan say the campaign would further push Afghan officials to provide more facilities for women in those arenas.
“The project not only aims to promote women role in political sphere, but pushes for increased women role in economic areas as well, but we are not legislators.  What only we can do via the project is to put some extra pressures on government to pay more attention for women,” Johnloka Soulra, democracy and civil society chief in Afghanistan said.
While, international allies provided tens of millions of dollars to women promotions programs in the past 17 years in Afghanistan, still women have least access to their basic rights.
The women rights advocates, blames government for this misery.
“We all need to step up practical measures for women empowerment in Afghanistan. Our suggestions must be heard directly via the European Union parliament, not by the government of Afghanistan,” said Najia Karimi, the executive director of humanitarian assistance for the women and children.
“Ignoring the law has provided a space of irresponsibility for paying enough attention to women,” Naem Nazari, the executive director of civil society network said.
The EU campaign for promoting women role in political affairs is a one year nationwide struggle to eradicate obstacles women face toward their active participation. (Agencies)
