Afghan Women's Rights

About

The majority of women in Afghanistan have long been deprived of their basic rights. Violence and abuse against women and young girls have been reported time and again. The prevalent issue is that a large number of women are not fully aware of their basic human rights and therefore fall prey to unfavorable situations and incidents. The best way to overcome this challenge is to create more awareness and educate the masses. This website will play a pivotal role in voicing women’s rights and serve as a resource hub to provide information on women rights issues in Afghanistan. We highly encourage the community to participate and promote this cause and join us on this path to ensure every women and girl child gets their deserved rights to have a prosperous today and a promising tomorrow.

While maintaining and enhancing the empowerment of Afghan women and girls, this campaign is set out to achieve the primary goals of:

  • Increasing public awareness of the harmful cultural practices and social norms that contribute to gender-based violence and the harm it inflicts
  • Improving perceptions of women’s rights and contributions to Afghan society
  • Galvanizing support of the community to improve Afghan girls’ lives and provide them with equal opportunities.
