Without justice, there can be no sustainable peace or development in Afghanistan.

That's according to Sima Samir, a former Minister of Women's Affairs in the country, who was at UN Headquarters recently to talk about the whole issue of judicial rights.

She currently chairs Afghanistan's Independent Human Rights Commission, and although she says there is a long way to go, she points to major strides the nation has made in improving the rights of women.

Ms Samir spoke to Liz Scaffidi about what has been done to integrate women and girls back into society since the fall of the extremist Taliban government in 2002.
