Green Scarves for Solidarity – Photowall

ACT NOW: On 5th December 2011 governments will be at a Conference in Bonn , Germany, at which the peace process in Afghanistan will be an important focus of discussion. Use this photo-petition to call on governments to: Ensure voices of Afghan women are heard at the Bonn Conference, including the Afghanistan Women’s Network, and that agreements made at the conference explicitly call for women’s rights in Afghanistan to be protected not undermined.

The Afghan Women’s Network is asking the international community to:
Use their influence to ensure women have an effective voice and role in all levels of the peace process: national, provincial and district level.
Work with the Afghan government to ensure that all the human rights in the constitution are upheld in any peace settlement. Including women’s right to an education and the right to participate in political life with a guaranteed 25% female quota in parliament.
Increase support to development programmes that promote women’s political, social and economic rights and wellbeing.
