KABUL, Mar 08, 2009 (Xinhua via COMTEX) -- Women in Afghanistan's northern Kunduz province on Sunday established a business association to enhance economic activities, chief of the Women Affairs Department in the province Nadira Joya said.

She said that the association would encourage women to get involvement in carpet weaving, embroidery, agriculture and poultry and supply their products to bazaar in order to improve their families'living standard.


The status of women in the post-Taliban Afghanistan has been very much improved as Afghan women nowadays are involved in political, social and economic activities.
