"The sad part is that the international community’s actions do not reflect what they say. It talks about women’s rights, but then they don’t include them [in peace talks]. Women’s involvement should be one of the conditions. The problem here is that it’s not only the Afghans, it’s the international community that also sees that women are not capable or useful in the negotiations."
