women international day

Tags:

Women have very important role in their society, she can be a mother, a sister, a spouse even a good friend.
The 8th March is celebrating as women day around the world; it shows that the women have an important role to building up the society.
The tradition in some countries sees men honoring their mothers, wives, girlfriends, colleagues, etc with flowers and small gifts in the international women day. In some countries has the equivalent status of Mother's Day where children give small presents to their mothers and grandmothers.
Just celebrating and giving a present to a woman is not meaning that you have respected the women; you have to stop violence against them and let them share their ideas. They have their own rights. Islam is a religious which has given the woman the proper and complete rights. I wish Afghan women could reach to their own Islamic rights.

Let them share ideas!

Hi Atifa,

I love your ideas and your writing... this line especially moved me, "Just celebrating and giving a present to a woman is not meaning that you have respected the women; you have to stop violence against them and let them share their ideas."

I hope that you will continue to write in your journal about women's issues in Afghanistan. Your voice is so powerful!

In friendship,
Jade
