Women Empowerment: A Study of Media and its Role in Empowerment of Afghan’s Women


During the last fourteen years, Afghan media has played a significant role in empowering women and they still do. Media has a crucial responsibility in promoting women’s participation in society. It has the power to spread messages and raise awareness for the challenges women face. Most importantly, media has given women a voice which has allowed them to actively engage with the Afghan government, interest groups and society at large. This paper is about Afghan women print media, focusing on media representation of Afghan women in the Afghan women’s print media in post-Taliban Afghanistan. The Afghan women’s media has been studied to find out how Afghan women are represented and how it impacts women’s social condition in Afghanistan. A textual analysis of Afghan women’s magazines provided the research material for this study. Feminist theory is used to determine the effect of Afghan women media representation in the post-Taliban period on the perception of women in the Afghan society.
