WOMEN'S

NETWORK?

#VoicesTogether

This document offers 

a starting point for a unified vision and should serve as a strong intellectual framework for the negotiations and any resulting peace agreement. 

On behalf of the Women’s Regional Network: Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, (WRN) and the Women’s Advocacy Committee (WAC) of Afghanistan, we congratulate you on your historic victory as the first female Vice President of the United States.

This policy paper is based on Women’s Regional Network’s (WRN) research study, entitled Rohingya Citizenship Saga in Pakistan: Women’s Human Rights at Stake conducted in 2020, by Farhat Parveen and edited by Dr. Jennifer Bennett.  

 

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.
