🎉 The 20th anniversary of the #UN Resolution on Women, Peace and Security #UNSCR1325 coincides with a pivotal point in history for #women and #peace in Afghanistan.

🔸As political and community leaders, decision-makers, influencers, human rights defenders and visionaries, Afghan women routinely contribute in all aspects of the Women, Peace and Security (WPS) agenda. Women and children, however continue to be affected by the ongoing conflict. According to the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) report on civilian casualties, more than 4/10 civilian casualties in Afghanistan were women and children between January-September 2020.

🔸Together with other civil society actors, BRD has raised its voice to declare that women’s full, equal and meaningful participation in peace negotiations is essential to achieving #sustainable peace. Women bring unique and important perspectives to all aspects of the peace process, from negotiation, implementation and representation of the full range of political, economic and social issues of importance to all Afghans. Since 2002, BRD has been empowering women and girls through economic initiatives, leadership and education in Afghanistan.
