Afghan women want only their rights. But which rights? The fact is that no sound remains of Afghan women shouting for their rights.

What do Afghan women want from the world and their country? They want honor, confidence and respect.

Afghan women want to pick up a pen and write their destiny. With their own hands, they want to remove the destinies that have been written by others.

Afghan women are tired of staying at home. Like other women around the world, they want to work for the development of their country.

Women have value. Afghan women are valuable. They do not want to be regarded with contempt. Afghan women no longer want to hear that a woman has no value.

Afghan women want education, which gives a person value. Education is how Afghan women can help develop their country.

Afghan women have wings for flying. Afghan women want to be free like other birds that fly into the blue sky. But ancient cultures and old thoughts have clipped their wings and, like birds alone in cages, they remain looking out, waiting to fly to the highest point in the sky.

Afghan women quickly become old, their wishes carried with them to the grave. Still, their children remain, becoming brave women and men. Afghan women want their children to complete their wishes. Then the souls of Afghan women are happy.
