Violence Against Women in Afghanistan Violence against women is one of the main and widespread violations of human rights that exist in all cultures in the world. Any act of gender base violence that would cause mental, physical or sexual harm to women is called violence against women. It does not only violate human rights but also slowdowns the productivity of women in the society which have a very negative effect on economic growth of a country because women form the major proportion of the population in the world.

In Afghanistan violence against women is very much widespread and deeply rooted in different parts of the country.
Actually sex is an impulsive desire which cannot be tamed while marriages try to confine these desires only to the married partner. Thus this restriction on the fundamental instinct of human beings creates a lot of sexual frustration in them. This often puts a spouse in a state of depression. A research carried out by Buss and Shackelford of the University of Texas at Austin revealed that around sixty percent men and fifty percent women are involved in some kind of affair during their marriage (193-221). As a result, the problem of spousal infidelity arises which is one of the major causes of divorce all around world.
There is an epidemic of sexual slavery in countries such as Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Laos. This issue has long been recognized as a destructive force in the world, spreading HIV and other diseases around the world at an alarming rate. Women and children are sold into slavery at a very young age (from 4 to 30 years old), often beaten, and forced to perform sexual acts which create irreversible damage in a human being. Many social economic issues such as extreme poverty, corrupt government officials, and lack of infrastructure has rendered these countries vulnerable to the high demand of the escort industry in countries around the world. These problems will be addressed looking through the global lens of power and its influence.
Social and Economic Effects of the Russian Mail Order Bride Industry The mail order bride industry has always been controversial on a global scale due to its undeniable reality of selling human beings to one another. In most cases this proves to be a true testament about the industry, but in the case of Russia much of the actual reality goes unknown. The history behind the term "mail order brides" goes as far back as the time of the first American settlers. The settlers, most of whom were men, could not find suitable women to marry and had to write letters to Europe asking women to become their wives. In those days, arranged marriages were quite common, and marrying somebody you barely knew was nothing out of the ordinary.
Abortions are a wrongful decision in my eyes. There are many alternatives to abortion. An alternate solution instead of abortion could be adoption or family members taking care of the child.

ABSTRACT THEME-REHABILITATION OF TRAFFICKED VICTIMS: CHALLENGES REHABILITATION, REINTEGRATION AND REPATRIATION OF TRAFFICKED VICTIMS: CHALLENGES AND MEASURES TO COMBAT THE EFFECTS Trafficking of women and children, violating basic human rights is an organized sensitive global crime. Trafficking at its core, is reducing human beings to property and exercising absolute control by means of violence and exploitation over that “property”. It is fraught with myriad complexities because the victims comprise “the hidden population”, those from commercial sex industry, factories, hotel businesses, domestic workers, beggars, victims of ritual servitude etc. Findings suggest trafficking causes short and long term irreversible personal traumas which can be divided into three main categories: physical, psychological and behavioural damages. In many countries, trafficked victims are denied legal residence status and may be subjected to deportation, even before they get to participate in the criminal process or to demand compensation.
The most common causes of discrimination are: sexual orientation, race, disability, religious beliefs, age, gender, and ethnicity.

Men were sent by the millions to fight in the terrible total war. This left a massive void in the workforce, in dire needs to be filled. Subsequently the government had no choice but to allow women to join the workforce in order to fill the vacant positions. 19 million women entered the workforce, providing an opportunity to showcase their ability and prove they can do more than fill the role of homemaker. The positions women filled while men were at war included nursing
Battering is the single major cause of injury to women, more significant that auto accidents, rapes, or muggings. In fact, the emotional and psychological abuse inflicted by batterers may be more costly to treat in the short-run than physical injury. Many of the physical injuries sustained by women seem to cause medical difficulties as women grow older. Arthritis, hypertension and heart disease have been identified by battered women as directly caused or aggravated by domestic violence suffered early in their adult lives. The only way for you to break the cycle of domestic violence is to take action, and the sooner you it the better.
