What Can We Do for Women and Girls in Afghanistan?
Help Us Spread the 500Days of Oppression video campaign
The 28 December 2022 marked 500 days since the Taliban took power over Afghan peoples. Since then, they have jeopardised every aspect of Afghan women’s rights.
Since August 2021 the Taliban has violated the Afghan constitution and international human rights law. It broke all its promises by engaging in systematic discrimination and violence against Afghan women. Many Western politicians pay lip-service to Afghan women, while, in reality, they either take no position towards the Taliban, or have tacitly supported it through political negotiations, transactions and visits. As a result, the Taliban acts with more and more impunity, being directly or indirectly validated and empowered by the world political leaders.
It is time the Western politicians take responsibility for their actions. We demand justice for Afghan women. We demand the end of war on Afghan girls. We demand the end of empowering the terrorist group. Afghan women are only victims because of the environment in which the Taliban and Taliban-like men continue to terrorise and victimise them, while the world is passively watching. We demand the end of political negotiations with the Taliban. We demand visas and refugee protection for Afghan women and girls. We demand education and grants for Afghan girls and women around the world. We demand humanitarian aid to be directed towards women of Afghanistan, by-passing the Taliban mediators and controllers. We demand material and moral support to Afghan women activists who wish to remain in Afghanistan and fight for their rights. We demand the world’s condemnation of the Taliban’s terrorist regime and disengagement from political negotiations with the Taliban leaders.
