The Afghan Women’s Business Federation (AWBF) today has created the new women’s rights certification trademark brand called “AfghanMarkSM” which is a brand label that will be carried on future exported carpets made by Afghan women who are employed by the women-owned or women-managed carpet-making businesses that are members of the Afghan Women’s Business Federation of Afghanistan.  This is a major humanitarian, educational and business development breakthrough by Afghan women for Afghan women in the post-Taliban era of Afghanistan’s history.
