Alternative title:

Women’s safety in Afghanistan — an analysis of the efficiency of the legal guarantees adopted after 2001

Subject and Keywords:

Afghanistan   human rights   women’s rights   Islam   so-called honor crimes   violence against women


The situation of women in modern Afghanistan is far for stable. Not only the violations of their basic rights are very common, but also the cruel practices of violence against them, i.a. baad, baadal, so-called honor killings, self-ignitions or proclivity to punish women for zina or running away are often committed. Simultaneously, there are law gaps limiting the effectiveness of legislation, lack of respect for guaranteed rights and ineffectiveness of actions towards protection of women’s rights. Undoubtedly, it is necessary to take further, prompt steps both by Afghan Government and respective non-governmental organizations to protect Afghan women from cruel practices and to ensure their basic rights, safety and the worthy life.
