Women in Afghanistan continue to constitute a very small part of the official labor force. We asked Sima Samar, Chairperson of the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission, what could be done to give women greater economic opportunities. She stressed the importance of empowering women for themselves, their families, and society, and the role of education in changing attitudes.
