Physical, sexual, and psychological violence does not spare many women in Afghanistan. Herat, the second most populated province in western Afghanistan is no different. It has one of the highest rates of violence against women and girls of the country, but just a few of these crimes are reported. Too often this is because there is simply no one to whom they are able to turn. Amina Ehrary, a Herat resident and a year-old mother of three, was determined to change this. Having spent most of her life fighting for women's rights, she now runs her own women counseling center where she advises, supports and gets access to justice for survivors of gender-based violence.
Most of the problems women face in Afghanistan are the consequence of cultural practices that deny women's rights and the lack of awareness among women about their legal rights. Women affected by violence do not know how to report the complaint and when they reach to the police and other government bodies they do not get support from them, instead, they are being mocked for sharing their personal issues publicly.
As Amina has been educated in Sharia Law, she can articulate the difference between Islamic laws and cultural practices with authority. She usually visits remote villages in Herat where she mobilizes women and men and conducts awareness sessions about women's rights. This makes me very happy when I see changes in the mindset of men.
Being a part of this project taught Amina to identify and solve the challenges she faces in her community. She applies the learning and experiences in her daily life and shares them with other women asking for advice at her counseling center.
