Support Afghan Women
Women’s Foreign Policy Group stands in solidarity with women and girls in Afghanistan as the Taliban takes control of the country. This includes the right of women to live and work in safety and security. We recognize the dedication and tenacity of many women leaders and advocates, and pledge to do all we can to mobilize our community to ensure their safety and wellbeing. We ask from those involved in any peace negotiations to ensure that the rights of women and girls are safeguarded. Learn how to help | Read more
