Our Voices - Our Future: Open letter to EU Leaders calling them to stand with the women of Afghanistan

Our Voices - Our Future (OVOF) is a coalition representing thousands of Afghan women and individual activists, of which CW4WAfghan Afghanistan Policy Dialogue (APD) group members have been a part. As peace talks continue in Doha, Qatar, OVOF has released an open letter addressed to leaders of the European Union, calling on them to stand in solidarity with the people, particularly women, of Afghanistan to ensure a transparent and fully inclusive peace process that not only brings about a ceasefire, but also "protects the rights of all Afghans and recognizes all citizens including women and minorities, as equal and free". CW4WAfghan stands in solidarity with OVOF and echos their calls for support. We know that for a just and durable peace to take hold during and beyond negotiations with the Taliban, the active support of the international community is required. The letter outlines specific ways in which EU leaders can lend their support to this process. Please read the letter in full, circulate this information to your contacts, and help ensure that Afghan women's voices are amplified so the can continue to be active agents for peace and development for the country's future.
