Kabul, Aug 20 (TIWN) Afghan women who have been working in government and non-government agencies held a gathering in Kabul to express concerns about the future and on how females will be represented in any future government, local media reports said.

This comes as the Taliban said it has begun discussing the formation of a new government.  "The people, the government, and any official who is to form a state in the future cannot ignore the women of Afghanistan. We will not relinquish our right to education, the right to work, and our right to political and social participation," said Fariha Esar, a human rights activist said.
