The next Lambeth meeting will focus on the new Amnesty campaign about women's rights in Afghanistan.
This is a crucial time to protect Afghan women’s rights, as international forces – including those from the UK – prepare to leave the country next year. Instability and conflict could increase. If the current systematic problem of violent abuse faced by Afghan women and girls is not addressed now, the situation will only get worse.
Right now, 87% of women in Afghanistan experience some form of violence. We urgently must stand with Afghan women and demand an end to the epidemic of violence they face.
