What does the future for Afghan women hold?


Women's Rights activists in Afghanistan say the international community is preparing to abandon them, in the rush to withdraw troops from the country.

Improving women's rights was one of the major objectives cited when US-led forces toppled the Taliban 10 years ago.

But campaigners fear that the advances made by women over the past decade could be reversed, if a peace deal is done with the Taliban.

They believe women, and their concerns, could be sidelined at the upcoming Bonn conference on the future of Afghanistan.
