We would like to invite you to ‘Afghan Women Human Rights Defenders Demand Justice and Accountability’ a side event for the 48th Session of the Human Rights Council. The side event will take place on October 5 at 10:00 – 11:30 AM EST/2.00pm – 3.30pm UTC. This event will take place via Zoom. Register at https://bit.ly/3ogOB1q.
From mobilizing resources, to creating networks of support and emergency services, Afghan women human rights defenders have always been at the frontlines of resistance and continue to disrupt oppression and defend the rights of all within their communities. Join us to hear from Afghan women human rights defenders on their demands for justice and accountability, particularly from powerful States that have been complicit in human rights abuses in Afghanistan and international institutions that have failed to meaningfully and concretely protect the rights of Afghan people.
The event will be in English with simultaneous interpretation in Dari, Spanish and French. Closed captioning will be available in English. This event is co-organized by the Regional Coalition of Women Human Rights Defenders MENA, FEMENA, AWID, Musawah, Women Living under Muslim Law, and the Harvard Law School Program on Law & Society in the Muslim World.
