Girls and Women suffer in countries like Afghanistan!
Marriage in childhood and violence
Gulsoom was a 12 year old girl who was drowned in her childhood’s dreams and games. She even did not know the meaning of marriage and shared life with a husband, however, she invited her friends to participate in her doll’s wedding.
One day instead of her doll she becomes the bride herself and goes to her husband’s home to Ghazni Province of Afghanistan. After six months of her marriage, her husband dies. She did not have anyone to live with them and did not have any other way, but to return to her parents’ house. When she returned to her parents’ house, her parents did not behave with her like six months before. She spends very hard days. Her mother is no more kind to her. She daily abused and insulted her. She was beating her saying she had a bad luck and why she came back to her house. Gulsoom lives this harsh and difficult life for one and a half year and then due to violence she no more can tolerate, so by the help of her sister-in-law she goes to Kabul, Afghanistan. From there she is helped by a woman to take her to (Women Office for Afghan Women) and they are trying to find a way to solve Gulsoom’s problems so that she can live a normal life.
This is the real story of one child in Afghanistan, but there (not might be) but are millions of Gulsooms suffering in different parts of Afghanistan. They are helpless and must live even the worst life they are provided.
What can we do being women all over the world to help them in action?????????
