Afghanistan Women Ten Years After Military Intervention

To highlight the 10th anniversary of US and British forces’ intervention in Afghanistan Action Aid recently carried out an extraordinary survey where 1,000 women from Afghanistan were polled to gain a rare insight into their opinions about living through the last ten years of war and the current reconciliation process with the Taliban. As part of the campaign, ActionAid is calling on the UK government and the international community to protect women who have defended women’s human rights in Afghanistan in the last ten years, to support women’s organisations with direct, long-term funding and to ensure that women’s voices and views are heard at the Bonn conference in December, where the international community will discuss Afghanistan’s future.
