A description on how women in Afghanistan were stripped of all their rights under the Taliban regime and in the name of Islam. This paper discusses how experts maintain that religion is never a problem, rather it is the economy of a country that leads to poor human rights situation. It gives an historical background to Afghanistan specifically how it has been torn apart with more than 23 years of warfare and its poor economic situation. Furthermore it explains how this is negatively affecting the social setup and especially the lives of the female population.

From the Paper:

"To say Afghanistan is a poor country would be an understatement. Afghanistan is simply one of the poorest countries in the world with its GDP growth rate being negligible and more than 53 percent of it coming from agriculture which is still in primitive stage. It is important to mention here that Afghanistan's dependence on agriculture is leading to extreme poverty because no sophisticated methods are being used to increase productivity and the government is not doing much to exploit land, which contains abundant mineral resources. (CIA Fact book, 2000)"
