Demand Afghan Women Have a Seat at the Table for Peace Negotiations

    1. Sponsored by

      WOMEN FOR WOMEN INTERNATIONAL

The future of Afghanistan is at stake.

Right now, critical peace negotiations are taking place and Afghan women are being denied their rightful place at the table.

In recent years, a resurgence in Taliban forces, human trafficking and armed warlords have destroyed the status and safety of Afghan women. 

More than anything, women in Afghanistan need to play a full part in rebuilding their country to guarantee their future safety.

Let's support our sisters, and help them to build a better future for Afghanistan.

Act now to support our sisters in Afghanistan. Urge Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to take immediate action so that Afghan women can take full part in peace negotiations.

      Mrs. Clinton when did you decided to deny other women the very same rights you have. You among many have proven you can achieve what you strive for with determination, heart and good honest work. I thought better of you that is why I voted for You.

      Hillary, darlin', ya'll no that women are more than equal to men in a lot of areas. In a society where they have first hand knowledge of every day life, they are a necessity if there is to be a few calm heads in the mix. Now, personally, I would make it a all woman team. If you choose women from each tribe, not men with their, you did this and you did that mentality, there will be no peace. If there is to be a uniting of all the tribes of afghanistan, only the women can make that happen. In my opinion the President should tell his Commanders in the field to gather one or two, chosen females by their peers, in each tribal area to start to draft a constitution w/o the men knowing it; and at the appropriate time they should have every tribal leader sign it. If not all the women and chidren will leave the country at once. Or they could do it the old way, a buscachi [sp] only if a woman wins they will stay, and the men will have to abide by the new constitution.
