Hasina Azizi, women's activist from Afghanistan is our guest on today's programm. Refuge, activism and migration are themes that we touch on in our talk.

Hasina is a known activist, working for several NGOs including the United Nations and the Women's corp peace of Afghanistan. Education has been important in her family. Being one of very few women from her village Nimrus she received a scholarship allowing her to study abroad for education. Once she began her career she helped to support her family and simultaneously founded a vocational training facilty for women which specialized in carpet weaving, This start up provided job opportunities to women in need (Baluchi handmade products).

A tale of resistance, she recalls the harrowing escape from Afghanistan once the Taliban regained power. Eventually endiung up in a humanitarian city camp in Abudabi. Initially, told she would only be there for two weeks, she finally could migrate to Germany six months later.


Hasina's family was separated by the situation, her father who worked for the government left with her monther and sister for Iran. She applied for her parents as dependents which was approved. However, one of her brothers who was studying in India is unable to be reunited with their family at this time, another brother is in Iran with his family.

Taliban's rule has caused dramatic changes in the lives of women, going from bad to worse. Recent prohibitions ban women and girls from attending schools, from wear colourful clothing, and women are banned from all public spaces. NGOs have been shut down and worsening economic climate and pulling women from the workforce has caused further strife.

The errosian of womens rights have created a situation where families desperate to buy food and essentials are selling of girls to older men. A general errosion of society has occured with domestic abuse on the rise and barbaric public beatings of women have occured.
