Abstract
Throughout the history, the central role of women in society has ensured the stability, progress and development of nations. The women of Afghanistan, a country that passed 4 decades of war, but still they are taking part in making our beloved Afghanistan a better place. Economic development of a country is something which requires a collective work with diligence, honesty, talent, knowledge, leadership, discipline and above all a motivated and inspired sum of people specially women. Being a woman in a country which traditions come first is something which makes it very difficult for playing the role effectively. Women's economic empowerment refers to the ability for women to enjoy their right to control and benefit from the resources, assets, income and their own time, as well as the ability to manage risk and improve their economic status and well-being. In this paper, the role of women in economic development of Afghanistan will be explained point by point by using primary and secondary data from reliable and accurate resources plus, programs and workshops for women economic empowerment and the barriers and obstacles faced by them as well.
