Equality Now has just issued an Urgent Alert calling on the government of Afghanistan to immediately withdraw a proposed Bill that would transfer management of women’s shelters from women’s organizations to strict government control. The draft regulations propose unwarranted government oversight over women seeking protection in shelters and restrict their freedom of movement. Given the Afghan government’s abysmal track record on women’s rights, a government take-over of shelters would have serious implications for Afghan women.
