Letter to the Prime Minister and Secretaries of State with an Urgent Request for Advocacy on Afghan Women and Girls

On 17 August 2021, GAPS sent a letter to the Prime Minister and Secretaries of State for the Home Department, Foreign Commonwealth and Development Office, and Defence on the urgent and life-threatening situation in Afghanistan and the serious risk of violence and imminent danger that Afghan women are facing, particularly those who have participated in peace processes, led women’s rights-related activism and journalism, and delivered programmes to meet women’s needs.

The letter was signed by over 100 organisations, networks, individuals and academics who works in women’s rights, human rights, peace building, the humanitarian sector.

We are calling on the UK Government to act swiftly in accordance with its commitments and be a champion for gender equality, peace and security at this extremely critical time.
