Dr. Abdullah in Badakhshan once again talks about women!

Dr. Abdullah attended a very strong rally of his supporters in Faizabad of Badakhshan. The crowd was a very large and vocal group. The women's contingent was very robust! One woman even talked by way of welcoming the team!

In his speech, Dr. Abdullah talked separately about reconstruction of this far away province, especially the completion of the building of the Shorabak dam! He also talked at length about his government's attention to the plight of women. He mentioned that women comprise half of society and in this day and age it is unacceptable not to pay attention to their plight. He promised women that his government will work towards the improvement of the situation of women in education, in finding jobs, in economic opportunity and in their participation in all areas of society. The crowd received every one of his sentences with loud applause of approval!

This is not the first time that Dr. Abdullah and his team talk about their commitment to women. It will not be the last time.
