"There was a widespread shortage of judges, primarily in insecure areas, leading to the adjudication of many cases through informal, traditional mediation. A shortage of women judges, particularly outside of Kabul, limited access to justice for women.

During the year only 257 of 2,029, or 13 percent, of judges were women, a slight increase from 2018.

In rural areas lacking physical space for judges or prosecutors to operate and adequate security protection,...more

"A very significant group of fields of study from the point of view of their feminization is health care and social welfare. An exception in this group, are emergency medical services, where over a half of graduates in 2005-2010 were men. On the other hand, the most feminized fields are: obstetrics (99 per cent), nursing (97 per cent) and social work (92 per cent).

"In the Universities, women overtook men during 80’s, in Faculties, such as Law, being mainly chosen by women (since this allows them to compete for the access to the judiciary)" (57). "Women are also recuperating the educational disadvantage in the field of new technologies, a field traditionally attributed to men. However, the women’s presence in scientific Faculties, such as Engineering, remains low. There is an average of 18.4 women out of 100 freshmen. Such situation reduces chances for the women of getting hired by the most advanced IT companies. Therefore, as for scientific and technical positions, gender stereotypes persist in many companies...Needless to say, the number of women scientists remains...more
