Afghan women

The thing which excites me most about web 2.0 is gaining and sharing knowledge with diverse people of the world, getting to know about the hidden stories of the world based upon the fact and delivering the unexposed stories of my community to the world. Further more networking with different people of the world from different places of the world with diverse background and profession and using of new media for reaching to the world those voices of women which can’t be heard and distributing stories of those women who can’t raise their voice and speak for their right.

Through web 2.0 the women empowerment movement move ahead by forming a network of women and aid agencies across the world with the help of social networking, identifying their area problems and needs regarding women, share and discuss them with the rest of the network and target the communities where the women are more marginalized and face more violence and discrimination than establishing the aid agency on those areas which sort out their problems with the help of network members and other agencies and organizations.

In addition women can educate their community women about web 2.0 which make them aware about their rights and aid them in raising numbers of voices for speaking that make the policy makers focus towards their problems.
Women who do not have awareness about certain issues become aware of them, they could acquire certain skills and knowledge through web 2.0 which could aid in their competency and increase their participation in decision making and inform about other areas stories as I were not aware about breast ironing which I got to know it from world pulse correspondent Shekina.

The web 2.0 can become a bridge between donors and women organizations who like to work over women issues in collaboration of each other.

Afghanistan is the country which face the war more than three decades, due to the war majority of its people remain backward in getting education that created many issues like human right and women right violation, violence and discrimination against women, men poly marriages, prohibition of women from getting education and taking their own decision and many more……

I feel honor and lucky among many Afghan women and girls that I am educated enough to analyze situations and take decisions and become the voice of those women who do not know what is speaking, in which century they are living and whether the thing by the name of computer exist as well or not.

The uncovered and unreachable stories which I would share with other communities through new media may catch the international policy makers attention to pressurize over government for fully focusing over Afghan women development and their participation in creating harmony and peace building.
