UK MINISTER SLAMS GENDER APARTHEID BY TALEBAN

British minister Clare Short urged the world community to mark Sunday's international Women's Day by making a stand against ``gender apartheid'' in Afghanistan. ``Discrimination against women is human rights abuse on a global scale, and a major hindrance to the elimination of poverty,'' said Short, secretary of state for International Development. ``It is important that women worldwide seize the opportunity of International Women's Day to draw attention to the plight of women in Afghanistan, who are excluded from society by law and subjected to discrimination which is nothing short of gender apartheid,'' she said in a statement to mark Women's Day on March 8. Short said she was joining forces with European Commissioner Emma Bonino to raise awareness of the plight of women under the Taleban government. Bonino has been fighting a high-profile campaign since the Taleban seized power in Afghanistan in 1996 and stripped women of many of their rights. In a bid to create what they consider the purest Islamic state on earth they have banned women from going to work, closed girls' schools and imposed strict segregation. Short, an outspoken left-winger in the Britain's Labour government, also announced a 7.5 million pound ($12.3 million) humanitarian aid package for Afghanistan. She said she was tripling British contributions to UNIFEM - the United Nations Development Fund for Women - to over 600,000 pounds to help further its work in promoting women's human rights. Part of the funding will support a joint UNIFEM/United Nations Development Programme project in Takjikistan to support women's roles in peace building after five years of civil war.
