Women's Rights and Gender-Based Discrimination

Gender inequality has been a challenge that societies have grappled with since time immemorial, although the specific dynamics have varied for different societies in different periods. The root causes of violations of women’s rights and gender discrimination relate to the cultural, social, political and economic conditions present in a given society.

Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan has developed a booklet aimed to explain the different forms of gender discrimination, and its consequences, as well as to clarify women’s rights from the viewpoint of Islamic law and Afghanistan’s statutory laws.
