Afghanistan: Women's rights group dissatisfied with draft constitution
Source:Women for Afghan Women
Women for Afghan Women said it is "disappointed that Afghanistan's newly released draft constitution is weak in its affirmation of women's rights."
Their statement said the organization's "overriding concern is that the draft constitution, with its heavy reliance on Islam, leaves the law of the land vulnerable to extremist religious interpretations that are in opposition to women's human rights."
