In Pakistan and Germany she had everything and so it was quite hard for her in Afghanistan at the beginning. But she knew that she had to stay, above all because she wanted to support the women. She sat together with groups of women and explained them their rights. She told them to take their rights, to tell their husbands what their rights are and to demand them. Now Afghanistan has a new constitution, it even has a few democratic parties, but they don´t have a voice, because Taliban and warlords are the leaders.

She speaks Dari, Pashtu, Urdu, English and German.
