Afghanistan is facing a new humanitarian crisis after the Afghan president left the country on Sunday, August 15, and the Taliban, which adopts an oppressive regime, took power again after 20 years. Especially women and young girls, who are the most at risk group in the country, are deeply concerned about their future.

The Taliban's statements that they will not retaliate against government workers and human rights defenders during the transition period, and that women will have rights, including the right to education and work, "according to the rules of Sharia" are not enough to quell legitimate concerns. Although the Taliban tried to give a moderate image with these statements, news from the region shows that their actions do not match their statements. The Taliban continue their attacks on civilians and their current statements contain serious human rights violations. In addition, between 1996-2001 when he was in power it was forbidden for women to;

  • Go out without their faces being covered and without a male company,
  • Go to school and work,
  • Participate in politics or speak in public.
  • Access health services without a man, as the health workers consisted entirely of men.
  • And Sexual violence against women and girls, and forced 'marriage' were common.

We see and support the resistance of Afghan women, who have lost their rights and freedoms gained under difficult conditions in the last 20 years and who are at risk of being abandoned to an uncertain future.

In this process, we demand an Urgent Action Plan to protect the safety and rights of Afghan women and girls! This plan should include:

  • Emergency international refugee plan prioritizing women and girls
    An expedited asylum plan for women and girls at high risk
  • Emergency visa program and prioritization of women's asylum claims
  • Providing a safe way out and supporting evacuations for women and children who want to leave the country
  • Suspension of deportation and repatriation practices
  • Informing the public about immigration policies implemented by governments
  • Include Afghan women as the main stakeholders in the action plans to be taken to eliminate the uncertainties that turned into a threat in the transition period and to solve the crisis.
  • Supporting Afghan women to participate in discussions on all issues concerning the future of the country and to take a leading position during the signing and implementation of any agreement
  • Not supporting any peace agreement that harms women's rights
  • Ensure the right of women in Afghanistan to move freely and safely and to continue education and work without fear of restriction or reprisal
  • Ensure the Women's right to access healthcare in Afghanistan
  • Ensure The right of women in Afghanistan to participate in politics, law, NGO work without threats

Everything that Afghan women and children live and can experience is also the responsibility of all the people living on this Earth!

It's time to show that the struggle and solidarity for women's rights is universal and make the voices of Afghan women heard!
