After months of campaigning by the No women, no peace. and our member organisations and activists on women’s rights in Afghanistan, Justine Greening, the Secretary of State for International Development, committed to making tackling violence against women and girls a development priority for the UK in Afghanistan.
We are really pleased that the UK government has made this commitment but we need to see this translated into a dedicated programme of work.
On International Women’s Day, we launched a petition urging government departments to work together to prioritise tackling violence against women and girls in Afghanistan. Many of you have already signed, and the petition is really gaining momentum.
Sign the petition and collect signatures from others. Download a copy of the petition below.
Print this out, take it to work, school, or your activist group, get as many signatures as you can and send it to us at:
