Women in Afghanistan have one more right. The names of mothers can be put on their children's birth certificates. Before, only the father's name was allowed. Campaigners started a social media campaign for this in 2017. In Afghanistan, a woman's name is often not included on wedding invitations.

Afghanistan said the law was "a big step forward for women's rights". A campaigner said a mother can now put her child in school and travel, without a man being there. Another campaigner said her happiness may seem strange for women in other countries, but getting this right was a big thing.
