March 8: Solidarity with Afghan Women

By Samira Abrar

In this day of solidarity for women all over the world, the women of the CODEPINK take the brave Afghan women deep in our thoughts and actions. The spirit of all women is one, excited, dedicated and committed to the cause of freedom, peace, dignity, and human rights. The courageous Afghan women have been making great strides in demanding justice and equality, fighting for their own rights and those of others.

The movements of women’s liberation in Afghanistan throughout its history has proven that the women are unified for change and stand up for their rights in the face of patriarchy and terror. The recent rights grassroots movements in Afghanistan, where women have been at the heart of it, putting their lives on the line, were vibrant and expansive making a dramatic impact on empowering women’s political participation and leadership as well as making sure that the fundamental needs and urgent issues facing Afghan women are brought on the agenda of the government.

They catalyze peacebuilding and many positive changes in the Afghan society, and their spirit of resistance and resilience sets an example to the women worldwide.
