According to the recent report from UN, Women's rights in Afghanistan are improving but very slowly on an international level. Through different former rulers such as the mujahideen and the Taliban in the later part of the 20th century, women had very little to no freedom, specifically in terms of civil liberties. Ever since the Taliban regime was removed in 2001, women's rights have gradually improved under the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan.
Women's Participation is Sports
In the last decade Afghan women have participated in various types of sports including futsal, football, and basketball. In 2015 Afghanistan held its first marathon; among those who ran the entire marathon was one woman, Zainab, age 25, who thus became the first Afghan woman to run in a marathon within her own country.
Women Participation in Football
Football is first and a very popular game in Afghanistan, its known as men's/ masculine game. Although there are Women's Football National Team and football clubs around the capital, but there hasn't been much done in other provinces of Afghanistan for women's football. There has been lease attention and less or nearly no investment to women's sports activities in Provinces and rural areas of the country.
"Football is a great tool to improve gender equality since it's known as a men's game. Sports can help women to gain self-confidence and self-steam" Khalida Popal
