Afghanistan Between Violence and Development

First Female Mayor

Ms. Ozrah Jafari becomes Mayor of Daikondi province. This is a primary time a woman occupies such a high-ranking position, in the entire history of Afghanistan.

While intervening with Kabul Press, Ms. Jafari desires to develop into a helpful person serving the poorest region. Daikondi is a remote and mountainous region located in central of Afghanistan. Every year people face a nature barrier as snowstorm starts, people lose their connection with other cities.

As we experiencing those women on high rank position such as Habiba Sarabi, the governor of Bamyan province, are more honest and active than men in our society, since all men are drown into political rivalry and occupation.
