MADRE and Partners Call for Accountability in Afghanistan


With your support, MADRE and our partners in Afghanistan have made progress for women and girls’ rights. In January, we submitted documentation to the Gender Apartheid Inquiry—a first-of-its-kind investigation into the situation of women and girls in Afghanistan and Iran—shedding light on what women, girls, and/including LGBTQIA+ people in Afghanistan continue to face. The Gender Apartheid Inquiry is an examination of the situation of women in Afghanistan and Iran conducted by a U.K. Parliamentary Panel and the International Bar Association’s Human Rights Institute, and aims to identify practical and meaningful steps to address rights violations and crimes against women and girls within existing legal frameworks, while also exploring how these acts fit into the concept of gender apartheid.

In Afghanistan, the Taliban has committed human rights violations and alleged crimes against women, girls, and/including LGBTQIA+ people in an effort to enforce an institutionalized regime of systematic oppression and domination. Our submission calls for an inclusive definition of gender apartheid that would make visible longstanding discrimination that women, girls, and/including LGBTQIA+ people face acutely when it is enforced through crimes as part of such regimes.

When you support MADRE, you join us in combating discrimination to create policies for lasting change. We appreciate your continued generosity.
