A Measure of Equality for Afghan Women: Rights in Practice

Publication Date: 
February, 2011


In April 2007, Rights & Democracy launched a project entitled A Measure of Equality for Afghan Women: Rights in Practice. The aim of this project is to support the process of family law reform to bring it in line with the Constitution of Afghanistan and the obligations under international human rights treaties.

Another portion of the project is to increase awareness for Afghans on women's rights in the context of Islam, through an extensive tailored training program.
