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.

Vital Voices is proud to join our partners One Billion Rising with our network of over 18,000 women to add our collective voices to the FIGHT for Afghan Women's Rights and ask all women and allies to show your solidarity online! Share our demands with your government leaders, call upon everyone in your community to join and Rise For And With Women Of Afghanistan on Saturday, 25 September.
These early days are critical. Please join us to tell the Biden Administration to honor its commitment to support vulnerable Afghan women and girls.
