War in Afghanistan: What Do Women Not Want to Give Up in Exchange for Peace?

Tonight Rudi Vranckx goes to Afghanistan in “The Eternal War”. After 18 years of war, the US and the Taliban seem to be close to a peace agreement again today.

 

But what would that mean for women’s rights in the country? Brave Afghan women today draw a red line themselves: we will not give up on this anymore.

According to the Taliban spokesperson, a peace agreement with the US is near. “It’s a matter of days,” Suhail Shaheen told news agencies. “Hopefully we have an agreement before the end of this month.”

In exchange for a cease-fire, the Islamist rebel movement is demanding the withdrawal of US troops from the country. President Trump, on the other hand, wants a guarantee that the Taliban will never again use the country as a base for terrorist groups such as Al Qaeda.

What else is in agreement is a big secret. The human and women’s rights for the regions under Taliban rule can only be speculated.

Many women in Kabul are afraid of a return to the conservative and restrictive regime of the Taliban. With the Twitter campaign #MyRedLine, they call on the Afghan government and the international community to listen to their voices.
