Afghan Women and the Taliban
A Year of Resistance
On August 15, 2022, the anniversary of the takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban, FEMENA pays tribute to the brave Afghan women who at great risk to themselves have resisted the rule of the Taliban and their discriminatory decrees against women and girls. In their honor, we have interviewed 5 WHRDs, in order to learn more about their motivations for participating in and organizing public protests. We hope these interviews will help elevate the demands of these brave WHRDs for justice and equality.
