|Title:||Aziza Khairandish - Afghanistan WHRDs|
Aziza Khairandish responds to a call about a case where a woman’s nose and ears were cut off by her husband, who is now on the run – Aziza is trying to get the authorities to take action.
Aziza used to educate girls in secret when her home town of Herat was under Taliban control. Since 2006, she has headed the western regional office of the Afghanistan Civil Society & Human Rights Network. Still based in Herat, she promotes the rights of women and girls not just through awareness raising and youth forums, but also by directly challenging hard-line mullahs – something that leaves her and her family exposed to threats.
