Work with us advocating for women and girls' rights in Afghanistan

Demand Leadership and Action

Canada is a global leader in promoting the importance of women in peace and security internationally, exemplified through our country’s Feminist International Assistance Policy

Join us in demanding the Canadian Government leverage this global leadership position and the legacy of our country’s efforts in Afghanistan in influencing the international community, the US Government, and NATO.  

Our advocacy work is rapidly transitioning to ensure humanitarian assistance. We will post updates as we learn more from our team on the ground in Afghanistan. We draw on the expertise of an Advisory Council of Afghan women from politics and civil society, as well as the perspectives and priorities of diverse activists in our coalition networks.
