    Default Status or standing

    When I was confronted with translation of a sentence meaning Afghanistan women enjoy fewer rights than men, I don't know which word to use. Is it Afghanistan women has no standing or Afghanistan women has no status?

    "Afghani women have a lower status than Afghani men". "Women in Afghanistan have no status".

    Dangerously descending into politics. The same status as males in all things.

    It's a translation exercise of a statement made by somebody else.
