restricted Afghan society

 

In lesser developed countries, men and women have to marry regardless if they want to or not. Every couple must have children purely for the sake of continuing their family's legacy and traditions. Innocent children are to born every day to a place that is dying from within due to unjust treatment, and inequality without a touch of guilt or remorse from their leaders.

If we look carefully, we can see that, yet again, women are among those who are mistreated. Women are deprived of their right to proper education, tradition, and healthcare. Women are not given the choice of whether they want to have children or not. They are caught in the claws of a society unwilling to adapt to the modern world.

Women with an adequate education affect a community, with the lack of essentials, unwell and illiterate parents can not carry out their duties, and therefore society is getting worse.

So, an over populated society with various social and family problems is reproducing under the pressure is a big problem. Only by providing public awareness, teaching young girls and boys to develop better family ethics and skills through education is crucial to shaping a better and healthier future in a male dominated and restricted traditional Afghan society.
