Open Letter to Women World Leaders: Stand with Us to Protect Women’s Rights in Afghanistan

On August 5, the Afghan Women Network released an open letter on behalf of women in Afghanistan, addressed to female world leaders.

“For the past few years, there has been an ongoing effort to negotiate with the Taliban. While we support a peaceful end to the four decades of war, we are disappointed that these efforts have by and large excluded women.

We want a peace in which the women of Afghanistan, like in your nations, are considered equal humans and are given equal protection and opportunities.

While we acknowledge the four women who will be participating in the Afghan government-Taliban negotiations for the first time, we demand that their voices be heard, respected, and strengthened. We demand that they be given equal opportunities to weigh in on all matters related in the peace process”.
