> >Petition to the United Nations Background Information: Madhu, the
> >government of Afghanistan, is waging a war upon women. Since the Taliban
> >took power in 1996, women have had to wear burqua and have been beaten
and
> >stoned in
> >public for not having the proper attire, even if this means simply not
> >having the mesh covering in front of their eyes. One woman was beaten to
> >death by an angry mob of fundamentalists for accidentally exposing her
arm
> >(!) while she was driving. Another was stoned to death for trying to
leave
> >the country with a man that was not a r lative.
> >
> >Women are not allowed to work or even go out in public without a male
> >relative; professional women such as professors, translators, doctors,
> >lawyers, artists and writers have been forced from their jobs and
> >restricted to their homes. Homes where a woman is present must have their
> >windows painted so that she can never be seen by outsiders. They must
wear
> >silent shoes so that they are never heard. Women live in fear of their
> >lives for the slightest misbehaviour. Because they cannot work, those
> >without male relatives or husbands are either starving to death or
begging
> >in the street, even if they hold Ph.D.'s. Depression is becoming so
> >widespread that it has reached emergency levels.
> >
> >There is no way in such an extreme Islamic society to know the suicide
rate
> >with certainty, but relief workers are estimating that the suicide rate
> >among women must be extraordinarily
> >high:those who cannot find proper medication and treatment for severe
> >depression and would rather take their lives than live in such
conditions.
> >At one of the rare hospitals for women, a reporter found still, nearly
> >lifeless
> >bodies lying motionless on top of beds, wrapped in their burqua,
unwilling
> >to speak, eat, or do anything, but slowly wasting away. Others have gone
> >mad and were seen crouched in corners, perpetually rocking or crying,
most
> >of them in fear. It is at the point where the term "human rights
> >violations" has become an understatement.
> >
> >Husbands have the power of life and death over their women relatives,
> >especially their wives, but an angry mob has just as much right to stone
or
> >beat a woman, often to death, for exposing an inch of flesh or offending
> >them in the slightest way.
> >
> >Women enjoyed relative freedom: to work, to dress generally as hey
wanted,
> >and to drive and appear in public alone until only 1996. The rapidity of
> >this transition is the main reason for the depression and
> >suicide; Women
> >who were once educators or doctors or simply used to basic human freedoms
> >
> >are now severely restricted and treated as subhuman in the name of
> >right-wing fundamentalist Islam. It is not their tradition or 'culture',
> >but it is alien to them, and it is extreme even for those cultures where
> >fundamentalism is the rule.
> >
> >Everyone has a right to a tolerable human existence, even if they are
women
> >in a Muslim country. If we can threaten military force in Kosovo in the
> >name of human rights for the sake of ethnic Albanians, citizens of the
> >world can certainly express peaceful outrage at the oppression, murder
and
> >injustice committed against women by the Taliban.
> >STATEMENT: In signing this, we agree that the current tre tment of women
in
> >Afghanistan is completely UNACCEPTABLE and deserves action by the United
> >Nations and that the current situation overseas will not be tolerated.
> >Women's Rights is not a small issue anywhere, and it is UNACCEPTABLE for
> >
> >women in 2001 to be treated as subhuman and as much as property. Equality
> >and human decency is a fundamental RIGHT, not a freedom to be
> >granted,
> >whether one lives in Afghanistan or elsewhere.
