The U.S. Special Envoy for Afghan Women, Girls, and Human Rights, Rina Amiri, said without women’s participation and formation of an inclusive government, the conflict will intensify in Afghanistan.
Rina Amiri defended the struggle of Afghan women at the International Women of Courage that provided awards for Afghan women, and called them an example of courage that should be commended.
While there are no women in the composition of Taliban’s cabinet, Ms. Amiri stressed that women everywhere are an important part of the inclusive structure and the struggle of Afghan women is in line with US efforts to establish an inclusive government in Afghanistan.
“Their struggle is our collective struggle. Their struggle for an Afghanistan at peace with itself and its neighbors is our collective struggle,” she added.
The U.S. Special envoy for Afghan women and girls said that women have been deprived of all their rights since the Taliban took power in Afghanistan.
She added that about 40 million Afghans are living in bad situation, and Afghan women and girls are bearing its brunt more than any time.
Rina Amiri requested international community to support Afghan women and girls for peace and stability in Afghanistan.
After Taliban’s domination in Afghanistan, restrictions have been imposed on them. Though Taliban repeatedly have said that they respect women and girls rights in an Islamic framework.
Some women’s rights activists say that women’s rights are at risk in Afghanistan more than any time.
