RISE FOR AND WITH THE WOMEN OF AFGHANISTAN is a call to action developed in consultation with grassroots women leaders and activists in Afghanistan on the ground. A call to activists, supporters, allies, and elected officials to advocate for a more feminist forward foreign policy that prioritizes the self-determination of the Afghan people and non-violence, sustainability and freedom. Women of the world and our allies stood with the women – and all vulnerable groups – of Afghanistan against imperialism, US-led militarism, fundamentalism, and fascism.

None of us are free until the women of Afghanistan are free. We believe the women of Afghanistan have the right to education, to travel, to freedom of movement, to jobs, to security, just having freedom to be able to breathe and be.

•On Saturday, 25 September Women of the world and all our allies #RiseRoarAndRage for the women in Afghanistan. A Global Solidarity Action In Your City, Town, School. Everywhere. RISE in the streets, stage creative political protests and artistic risings. Invite everyone, reach out to activists, students, artists, social justice groups, and more. Wear a mask. Social Distance. All events outside.

We follow the lead of Afghan women on the ground. We urgently call upon governments, the UN Security Council and regional entities to:
• Refuse to recognize a Taliban government, which has no legitimacy beyond the brutal force it commands and which terrorizes the people of Afghanistan, girls and women in particular.
• Stop all forms of support to the Taliban, including funding, providing of arms and technical knowhow.
• End imperialism, militarism, fascism and religious fundamentalism. Stop and prevent manipulating women’s rights for commercial and other interests.
• Support the women’s resistance to the Taliban inside Afghanistan. Respect and support Afghan women and people’s exercise of their democratic and human rights, including their right to self-determination.
• Evacuate women and men, human rights defenders, journalists, police officers, public employees, athletes, and LGBTI+ who wish to leave the country and ensure their safe passage.
• Create an independent body of observers, made up with a majority of women, who have a track record of promoting women’s human rights to monitor the situation in Afghanistan.
• Welcome refugees, with the US and their allies assuming the responsibility of financing the cost of resettling displaced people from Afghanistan.
• Immediately open humanitarian corridors to support the people of Afghanistan.
• Stop arms trade policies and the military industrial complex, which profits from the ongoing wars in Afghanistan and elsewhere the world.

We call upon the women of the world, and our allies, to:
• Listen, share and amplify the voices of the women of Afghanistan.
• Defend women’s rights, which are under threat in all countries, and uphold the principles of equality and secularism as the backbone of the protection of these rights.
• Expose your own government’s role in perpetuating or tolerating armed conflict and intervention in Afghanistan.
• Call for a feminist foreign policy that prioritizes sustainable peace, human security and freedom for all.
• Understand and advocate that our common future as women is reflected in the faces of Afghan women, as right-wing populist forces that are anti-women, anti-human rights, anti-democracy are rising around the world.
