"Afghan men are resistant to increased rights for the country's women, a survey shows. Two-thirds of the surveyed men felt that women already have far-reaching rights. The perception was more common among young men than among older people."
"Then the taliban, who ruled the country between 1996 and 2001, was removed from power, the situation for women in Afghanistan has improved. Mainly in larger cities such as Kabul, many work of women outside the home, and over 25% of the members of its parliament are women."
"But the reluctance towards increased gender equality are widespread among men in Afghanistan. It shows a survey to 2,000 adults afghans as organizations Promundo and UN Women carried out."
"Three-quarters of the women in the study felt that married women should have the same right as his partner to work outside the home. Only 15 per cent of men agreed."
