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

Afghan women and girls played a pivotal role throughout the history of their country. It is essential they continue to play this role and their hard-won rights are protected.

UN Women has been present in Afghanistan for over 10 years and will remain operational and engaged with partners to provide life-saving services to Afghan women and girls especially at this critical juncture for the country.

Womens rights in Afghanistan must have only one direction and that is forward.

UN Women stands firmly with the women and girls of Afghanistan in these difficult times, and we remain committed to supporting their safety and their full and free participation in the social, economic, and political life of the country.
