Afghanistan government achievements in past 13 years regarding the women affair : Following the end of over two decades of armed conflict, Afghanistan worked with the international community to adopt the Bonn Agreement, which served as a framework for the establishment of democratic governance in our country. The Bonn process laid the foundation for increasing women’s involvement in government and for more concerted action to advance the role of women, particular in increasing women’s involvement in decision-making and political life, established the Ministry of Women’s Affairs to act as lead ministry for the advancement of women’s status. The government ratified the Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination against Women, adopted gender mainstreaming as the strategy for advancing women’s status under the Berlin Plan of Action, and positioned gender as a cross-cutting perspective in the national development framework. So Afghanistan government established a Commission on the Elimination of Violence against Women, to initiate policy and program measures that would strengthen the government’s response to violence against women. Women of Afghanistan became a reality, and through these principles our Government and the international community committed to "recognize in all policies and program, that men and women have equal rights and responsibilities" and to “build lasting Afghan capacity and effective state and civil society institutions, with particular emphasis on building up human capacities of men and women alike. With the completion of the terms of the Bonn Agreement in 2005, the new Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and the international community signed the Afghanistan Compact during the London Conference on 2006.
