Unfortunately, the fate and lives of women and girls in Afghanistan have been associated with violence and every day women and children are victims of horrific violence, which are away from the Islamic law and ethical standards, and these incidents of violence are caused the serious concern, particularly for women.

Therefore, the Afghan Women's Network, once again demand from the government in considering the above issues to do serious attention for reducing violence against women and its further want to immediately implement the EVAW LAW on the perpetrator of the violence cases and secure women social and ethical protection .
