Majority of displaced populations in Afghanistan are women

Kabul, Dec 15 (Prensa Latina) Women make up the majority of the displaced populations in Afghanistan, reported UN Women, the United Nations organization dedicated to gender equality and the empowerment of women.

Afghan women and girls are affected due to the lack of food. The inability to exercise property rights or seek legal help means women in informal settlements live every day with the fear of being evicted.

Women are also forced to sell their assets to buy food, and in the most extreme cases, families sell their daughters for marriage, UN Women in Afghanistan warned on Twitter.

Afghanistan is in a worse economic, social, and health situation after 20 years of military occupation by the United States until 2021.

The US military troops invaded the impoverished Central Asian country under the pretext of fighting terrorism.

According to Brown University, the war cost the US taxpayer more than two trillion dollars.

As a result of the war, hundreds of thousands of afghan civilians were killed, several million have become refugees, and million others are internally displaced.
