The Biggest Deception

The Biggest Deception

Friday, 20 April 2012 Written by Kamila Ataee

First published here. (http://awwproject.org/2012/04/the-biggest-deception/) Written By: Kamila Ataee, Member of Young Women for Change Islam talks about justice and freedom for its followers. It talks about kindness and love. But when I read the Holy Quran and then compare it with the way some Muslims act, I find the Quran’s commandments are not often reflected in their actions. Islam focuses on peace, unity, humanity, kindness and justice. But many Muslims are betraying themselves and others with their behaviour. I want to describe the biggest deception. In the Quran, Allah says … More

  Written by: Mojda Ahadi, Member of Young Women for Change Sometimes even in the western world the role that the Afghan parents play with their children makes it difficult for their children to prosper and reach higher aspirations in life. This behavior that the Afghan parents carry out on a daily basis with their children affects especially the women and girls of this strict, forsaken community. Living abroad one would expect to see any community of people live their lives according to the customs of that society; however the Afghans that migrate not only bring along themselves but … More

  Written by: Wida Paikar, YWC Member For centuries, gender roles have played an essential part in men and women’s lives.

Gender inequalities have affected both men and women in different scenarios but women are prime victims. For quite some time feminists have been strong advocates against issues such as gender inequality, reproductive rights, domestic violence and sexual harassment. These issues involve … More

  Written by: Kubra Zaifi, YWC Member A right is not something that is given to you. A right is something that you have to achieve. In a country such as Afghanistan where there is just not enough support from the government, where all rules and regulations are male- dominated, and where everyday women suffer from several types of violence there is a greater need for an organization such as Young Women for Change to act and play an important role in supporting Afghan women and teaching men and women about human rights and ways on achieving those rights. Giving advice and mobilizing those … More

Being Part of Change

Being Part of Change

Tuesday, 17 April 2012 Written by Jamila Ghairat

Written By: Jamila Ghairat, YWC Member Whether we live in the crowded bustle of an inner city or in a quieter, less populated rural area, we are part of the community in which we are living and have equal rights. In fact, Young Women for Change has given us a greater vision and connected us to a new pathway of life. By identifying the women’s problems in a community, listening to the other voices, and jointly reaching solutions; you can become a catalyst and resolve many issues in our own. Most young women are stuck in a self-imposed prison with no one to show them how to free their … More
