“Women should not mix with men”

In Uncategorized on March 6, 2012 at 17:43

Afghanistan’s top religious council has said women should not mix with men in school, work or other aspects of daily life. The Ulema Council has also said that women should not travel without a male relative. The BBC’s Orla Guerin has been hearing reaction to the ruling from people in Kabul. The comments by senior clerics -which have been welcomed by President Hamid Karzai -were included in a statement outlining the rights and duties of women under Islam. Human Rights Watch says it is worrying that the Ulema Council has issued this statement, and that President Karzai has backed it. The council says its comments are a request and a reminder, not an instruction. But critics say the statement is an echo of the Taliban.

Its almost everywhere now. Any party, committee, members of staff, artists on exhibition, every kind of people has to be represented everywhere. “We haven’t got enough women firefighters” – we hear on the news. And there should be a person from every race or ethnicity or ability for every group. Why? To tick the box? If there would be real equality nobody would ask which type of person you are, the only important thing would be if you can do you job well. Having “Women in Art” museums and exhibitions without “Men in Art” next door is not an acknowledgement but patronising.

Dragging crowds of woman into army, police, government, etc. is plain stupid. There are less of us here because we don’t generally want to be here. Men, I’m sorry, can’t breastfeed or get pregnant whatever governments are trying to tell us. And if all women are gone firefighting, who’s going to do these?(29 January2009)
