Recognition of gender apartheid in Afghanistan by the International Federation of Human Rights

Recognition of gender apartheid in Afghanistan by the International Federation of Human Rights

The International Federation of Human Rights recognized gender apartheid by approving a resolution

The international human rights body emphasizes that the time has come to expand the definition of “apartheid”.

This claim is based on the works of feminists, researchers and global experts.

By saying that gender apartheid should include oppression against a specific gender group, the situation of women and girls in Afghanistan has been raised as an example of this apartheid.

The Federation considers it appropriate to use the term “gender apartheid” to describe institutional and systematic discrimination.

However, it has been claimed that there is not enough international law to deal with situations like Afghanistan.

The vice president of the International Federation of Human Rights has declared that the recognition of apartheid as a crime will help to hold the perpetrators accountable.

The federation has called for gender apartheid to be recognized as a crime so that victims can get justice and perpetrators can be held accountable.
