Ariana News Agency: Shahrzad Akbar, who went to Brussels with some other prominent Afghan women to attend a two-day European Parliament session on Afghan women, said on the sidelines of the meeting that the current situation in Afghanistan was gender apartheid.
“It is unbelievable that in 2022 there is a country in the world where girls do not have access to education and women do not have access to work,” said the former head of the Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission.
Shahrzad Akbar said: “Every conscientious citizen must stand against this gender apartheid; This is unacceptable. “This is a test for humanity on how we can meet this challenge.”
The two-day European Parliament session on Afghan women entitled “Afghan Women’s Days” has begun in Brussels.
