KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): The Afghan Womeninfo-icon’s National Consensus for peace on Thursday stressed the need for ending the conflict, saying no faction could trample on their rights.

The session was held in the Loya Jirgainfo-icon tent and attended by First Lady Rula Ghani. Hundreds of women took part in the event.

Rula Ghani said the gathering would ascertain views of women from across the country about the peace process and a resolution would be issue at the end of the meeting.

“All Afghans want peace, but we don’t know why conflict drags on; we no longer want war as we are tired of it, The government desires peace and has plans for it,” the first lady remarked.

“Women always think no one listens to our voice. That is wrong because we are the key pillars of the community. Our thoughts and concerns are important and should be heard,” she stressed.

Zainab Mowahid, one of the participants, highlighted the importance of women’s rights in Islam. The first wife of our prophet was a businesswoman. Islam does not oppose women’s economic activities.

She said: “I call on Afghan women to determine their status and contribution to peace talks. We should not allow anyone to misuse the rights of women.”
