started this petition to
Abdurrauf Ibrahimi, Präsident des afghanischen Parlaments,
Michelle Bachelet, Direktorin von UN Woman,
According to the
Constitution of Afghanistan women have the right to participate in public life.
But reality shows us
that Afghan women that have the courage to participate in public life are often
exposed to nasty slurs, violent assaults and even death threats and
assassinations. Just in the past few
years, dozens of Afghan women who have dared to step into the public sphere got
murdered. Among them were journalists, politicians, women's rights
activists, parliamentarians, teachers, school directors and artists.
Especially those women who work for the interests
and rights of women are exposed to these problems. On December 10th 2012, the head of the women's section of
the province Laghman, Nadjia Sediqi, was shot in the morning on her way to work.
Five months earlier her predecessor, Hanifa Safi, was killed in a bomb attack.
As a united front, we
want to show our full commitment against the current conditions of Afghan
women’s fate and bring this controversial
issue to public attention. With your
vote you enable the responsible
authorities to take action, so that the sacrifices that women of
Afghanistan make are not in vain.
Afghanistan is in the
middle of carving a new society structure.
Support women with your signature to fulfill their
responsibility for the Afghan society!
