Kabul- Afghanistan

One billing rising on elimination of violence against women is a day which is the result of hard working, struggle and all intension to stop any types of violence against women. This day is considered as the very important day for defending women’s rights who constitute the half of the world population.

The Afghan Women’s Network in coordination with its NGO members and other civil society organizations joins this global movement each year and with raising the voice of justice for all, conducts advocacy on violence against women. This year also in coordination with 20 other CSOs announces the solidarity against exploitation of women.

Whereas the level of improvement and institutionalizing civil, humanitarian, and human rights values illustrates women’s status in the country and maintaining the human dignity of a woman in any society is the indication of a good political, social, and cultural structure of a country and ignorance of women’s rights is the indication of bad political cultural, social and cultural structure of a country.

Availability of any kind of violence against woman at any community like Afghanistan is a standard indicator to show the failure of the politicians and international community in spreading out civil culture and human values. The values that human are not measured and discriminated due to wrong standards such as race, sect and gender. 
With this solidarity Afghan women’s Network with all other brave women stand together with one voice and condemns any types of violence against women like beating, murder, rape, bad, woman trafficking, force prostitution, suicide, force to addiction, force, under age marriage, exchange for others marriages, chopping of their body parts, and with collaboration with open minded people look far better future with respect to human values. 
Let’s come with this solidarity for changes in the system, changes in perceptions, changes in mentality, changes in structure, awareness from the violence, changes in the policy which affect women economically, socially, physically, physiologically and to end this indicate various control procedures such to pressurize voice our sound. Solidarity is a fundamental relation which needs commitment, dare, confidence, faith and friendship.
