Afghan Women Need Your Help Now

The Taliban is going door-to-door in search of women’s rights activists. These women fear that they and their families will be assassinated. Immediate action must be taken to safeguard Afghan women most at risk: women’s rights activists, journalists, educators, civil society leaders, human rights defenders and direct service providers.

“For decades, Vital Voices has invested in women leaders solving the world’s greatest challenges. We know that Afghan women have been on the frontlines, risking their lives for progress. Vital Voices and our entire global network stand firmly behind these courageous leaders – we must act now to protect and defend them.”

Alyse Nelson, President & CEO, Vital Voices Global Partnership

Our voices are powerful alone, but unstoppable together. Please help amplify these vital voices and join us in our emergency efforts now. Call on the administration to act immediately to protect and support Afghan women, and urge others to join us. Be a part of this group and lend your voice in support of the women and girls in Afghanistan.
