Abstract [en]

The need to save the women of Afghanistan has for years been the focus of multiple

international organisations, and through humanitarian aid the world has attempted to achieve

this goal. This paper aims to gain an understanding of what it actually has been like to live, as

a woman, in Afghanistan during the years of increased humanitarian aid, after the fall of the

Taliban regime in 2001. To achieve this, the paper is based on the feminist institutionalist

theory combined with previous research. This paper will focus on gaining an understanding

of the informal institutions surrounding gender, and also look at empirical data to assess the

practical implementation of gender-equality on the ground. To understand if or how the

gender-equality has changed in Afghanistan this paper uses both quantitative and qualitative

data. The conclusion will show that, even though there is a difficulty in obtaining data from

Afghanistan, there has been a positive development for gender-equality on the ground and

that there, however, has been little to no change towards gender-equality within gender norms

and informal rules.
