A year since the Taliban seized power and enacted the most rapid and significant roll-back of human rights for women and girls in decades, it is more important than ever that the international community take decisive action to protect the rights of Afghan women and girls and ensure that they play a central role in determining their country’s future.
The Permanent Mission of Sweden to the UN, UN Women and the NGO Working Group on Women, Peace and Security invite you to a discussion between Afghan women civil society actors and UN Member States’ representatives, the UN Security Council and the UN leadership about how they can use their leverage, power and resources to protect and promote the full and equal enjoyment of all human rights for Afghan women and girls at this critical time for Afghanistan.
