Help Women in Afghanistan

Afghan women need your support now more than ever. UN Women is committed to stand by them and deliver.

It has been over 365 days since the Taliban took power in Afghanistan. For most Afghan women and girls, almost each one of these days since 15 August has brought a deterioration in their rights, their condition, and their social and political status.

Over the past 12 months, we have seen an escalation of restrictive policies and behaviours towards women.

● Afghanistan remains the only country in the world where girls are banned from going to high school.
● Women are restricted from working outside the home, except for a few sectors and particular roles.
● There are no women in cabinet and there is no Ministry of Women’s Affairs, effectively removing women’s right to political participation.
● Women are required to have a male chaperone when they are travelling more than 78 kilometres.
● They’re also required to cover their faces in public.

Combined, these rules limit women’s ability to earn a living, access health care and education, escape situations of violence, and exercise their rights—and they further limit Afghanistan’s ability to chart a way forward through the crisis.

For many women across the world, walking outside the front door of your home is an ordinary part of life. For many Afghan women, it is extraordinary. It is an act of defiance.
