Malalai Joya & die feministische Entwicklung Afghanistans

Girls Crush Monday

Wir beschäftigen uns mit der Entwicklung des Feminismus zwischen den beiden Taliban Regimen und porträtieren Malalai Joya, die vom BBC als bekannteste afghanische Frau benannt worden ist. Aber wieso wurde Malalai vom BBC als die bekannteste afghanische Frau bezeichnet? Konnte es zu einer Zunahme von Frauenrechten in einem seit Jahrzehnten von Krieg geprägtem Land kommen? Wie sieht es mit den Fortschritten jetzt aus nach der erneuten Übernahme des Taliban? Wieso ist es problematisch wenn Feminismus als Legitimation vom Bundeswehreinsatz genommen wird? All diese Fragen und mehr versuchen wir in der dritten Folge unseres Podcasts zu beantworten. AUFGEPASST! TRIGGERWARNUNG! Es wird über sexuelle Gewalt und Misshandlung geredet, sowie über Suizid.

Episode 507: AFGHANISTAN (2009) 1) MATHEW HOH, resigned Foreign Service, 2) MALALAI JOYA, expelled from Parliament

Free Forum with Terrence McNally

President Biden will remove all troops from Afghanistan after nearly 20 years, the longest war in our nation’s history. Here are two interviews from 2009: First, MATHEW HOH, a former Marine who resigned from the foreign service in protest. "American families must be reassured their dead have sacrificed for a worthy purpose…and I have lost confidence such assurances can be made." Second, MALALAI JOYA, youngest member elected to Afghan parliament in 2005, expelled in 2007. “The fact that I was kicked out of office while brutal warlords enjoyed immunity from prosecution should tell you all you need to know about the ‘democracy’ backed by NATO troops.”

Free Forum with Terrence McNally

Aired 11/15/09Malalai Joya is an Afghan politician who has been called "the bravest woman in Afghanistan." As an elected member of the Wolesi Jirga from Farah province, she has publicly denounced the presence of what she considers warlords and war criminals in the parliament.The daughter of a former medical student who lost a foot while fighting the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, Malalai Joya was 4 years old when her family fled Afghanistan in 1982 to the refugee camps of Iran and later Pakistan. After the Soviet withdrawal, Malalai Joya returned to Afghanistan in 1998 during the Taliban's reign. As a young woman she worked as a social activist and was named a director of the non-governmental group, Organisation of Promoting Afghan Women's Capabilities (OPAWC) in the western provinces of Herat and FarahTitle of Joya's autobiography "Raising My Voice", which was published in the US/Canada under the title of "A Woman Among Warlords" was published in October 2009 Noam Chomsky writes: "Perhaps the most remarkable feature of this inspiring memoir is that despite the horrors she relates, Malalai Joya leaves us with hope that the tormented people of Afghanistan can take their fate into their own hands if they are released from the grip of foreign powers, and that they can reconstruct a decent society from the wreckage left by decades of intervention and the merciless rule of the Taliban and the warlords who the invaders have imposed upon them."http://malalaijoya.com/index1024.htm
