Situation of Women Employed in Defense and Security Sectors

It is for more than a decade and a half that Afghan women have gained significant achievements and such accomplishments have always been appreciated in the assemblies as one of the best developments of the Afghan government and the positive impact of the international community’s presence in Afghanistan. The presence of women in our society has flourished more than before, and now a significant number of women in the country are active in various political, social, economic and cultural areas, and their role is increasing more and more with every passing day.

The effective presence of women is important in all areas of collective life, but the role of women in those areas that have not been common and was considered as taboo by conservative people is more important. One of these areas is the inclusion of women in the defense and security sectors of the country which, despite some challenges in this area, has made some good progress. It should be said that the presence of women in the defense and security sectors of the country has not been free from challenges, and there are still some problems that we will deal with later.

Undoubtedly, the role of women in defense and security sectors is of paramount importance. In addition to the fact that women as individuals, have the right to equal opportunities like men in all areas of life and to have access to all their human rights, the Afghan society today needs women’s presence and activities in defense and security organs.
