Since the Taliban took over control in Afghanistan, the life of women and girls has dramatically changed.
Afghan women and girls have been denied their fundamental rights to free movement, public space, education, jobs, political and social participation, and safety. They can not go outside without a male chaperon, access secondary education, work in spaces shared with men, apply to public jobs, protest safely or wear what they want.
In this unprecedented context, UN Women is committed to staying in Afghanistan and supporting all Afghan women and girls.
Join us on Thursday 5 May at 12.30 pm Vienna time to discuss with UN Women’s Representative in Afghanistan how the international community can protect the rights of all Afghan women and girls.
After registration, you will receive the link to the virtual round table by email. This allows you to join the Zoom video conference at the time of the meeting using a browser or a free app.
As always, we ask for a donation for UN Women’s support in Afghanistan.

We look forward to your participation!
