Abstract Women’s rights in Afghanistan have historically been limited by a religious conservative culture. The Mujahedins and the Taliban have oppressed women with religious restrictions and kept them in a religious traditional role restricted to the private sphere. In this project we have examined if a democratisation of Afghanistan can create better rights for women. We have examined how the tradition and the culture can be obstacles to a transformation and democratisation of Afghanistan. Do these processes lead to a liberation of women’s rights? The democratisation does not necessarily lead to a liberation of women’s rights. To accomplish this it demands a wish and support from the population and a solid backing from the international society. It is important that the state acknowledge women’s basic rights so they in this way can become active participating and influence their status in the society.
