A network of women civil society leaders working together to advance women’s rights and regional peace in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India. 

WHAT IS

WOMEN'S

REGIONAL

NETWORK?

#VoicesTogether

Women’s Regional Network Statement on the recent terrorist attacks on women rights activists and civilians.

Over 100 global leaders and foreign policy experts emphatically state that peace cannot be made on the backs of Afghan women.

Women's Regional Network's work which focuses on gender justice for an inclusive and sustainable peace aligns with Sustainable Development Goals, SDG 5 - Gender Equality and SDG 16 - Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions.  

 

WHAT WE DO

WRN amplifies the voices of conflict-affected women in order to address the interlinked issues of peace and justice, governance and security, within the context of growing militarization in South Asia.

WE BELIEVE THAT

 

Women are the key to constructing an indivisible and sustainable peace predicated on justice.

 

OUR ADVOCACY APPROACH

Women bear the brunt of forcible displacement.

 

Community Conversations are honest conversations with displaced women to capture their concerns, needs, testimonies, and solutions to inform political discourse and policy.

WE KNOW THAT

Empowering young women is the key to a just peace.

 

We support young women's leadership development by providing learning and mentoring opportunities, hosting digital cross-border exchanges, and sharing stories of change and resilience. 

 

Afghanistan, Pakistan and India make up the crossroads of South Asia.

It has become hard to narrate an Afghan, a Pakistani, or indeed an Indian story divorced from the internecine conflict - internal or international. On their own, neither the State nor the private sphere can be relied upon to guarantee women’s  freedom from violence and harassment, or fair and impartial justice. Therefore, it is critical that women civil society organizations work collaboratively to face the multitude of threats women face inside and outside of their homes.
