Thank you to over 32,300 of you who joined us in demanding that the UK government takes immediate action to safeguard the rights of women and girls in Afghanistan. The sheer volume of your response has been incredible.
On 12 September, we were joined by Amnesty UK’s Afghanistan country co-ordinator, Nigina Istanakzai-Zarifi, and Afghan human rights defenders, Maryam Rahmani and Horia Mosadiq, and handed our petition to the UK government.
Our call to the UK government is clear; they must take action by:
• Consulting and listening to women-led organisations in Afghanistan
• Supporting Afghan activists who are protecting the rights of women & girls
• Ensuring that respecting women’s rights is non-negotiable with the Taliban
• Providing safe passage for Afghan women & girls seeking asylum
