100 Sign Letter in Support of Afghan Women
Breaking the silence of world leaders, Ambassador Melanne Verveer and Secretary
Madeleine Albright led an intensive coordination effort to secure the signatures of about one hundred world leaders to support the arduous effort of Afghan women to be represented and heard in the ongoing peace process.
The past two weeks Women's Regional Network (WRN) and key US activists lobbied about
the lack of coordination among the donor countries and human rights advocates pushing
leaders to acknowledge the lack of coordinated efforts in order to promote and protect
Afghan women during the Intra-Afghan Talks.
What's the next step?
Now we need the donor countries to draw the redlines that these talks must not cross to
ensure Afghan women lead their lives to their fullest potential and that their rights are fully
enshrined in the Afghan Constitution.
This powerful letter demonstrates why we need more women in positions of influence. Read
the signatories in the attached PDF. BRAVO!!!
