Petition: Support Women In Afghanistan
"Today, 21st September, is International Peace Day. Since the beginning of the year we have been focussing on raising the voices of Afghan women and over the next few months we will be campaigning in partnership with No women, no peace. to promote Afghan women's rights, and their participation in the peace talks. We will be coordinating events and activities to stand in solidarity with Afghan women's rights activists. Join us to ensure their voices are heard!" - Women for Women International
Support women in Afghanistan
Now is a crucial time for women in Afghanistan. Talks, meetings and negotiations that will decide the future of their country are taking place. In December 2011, representatives from 90 countries and international organisations will meet in Bonn, Germany to discuss transition, international long-term engagement, and peace and reconciliation.
In July 2010, only one woman was invited to the Kabul Conference, an important moment in the process for peace in Afghanistan. We cannot let this happen again – peace can only be durable when the voices of women are heard.>
