Afghanistan - Gordon Marsden MP Supports Women's Rights
Gordon Marsden, MP for Blackpool South, made time during a campaign in Blackpool on 19th April to talk to members of our Amnesty Group about women's rights in Afghanistan.
Gordon signed a pledge card to express his sympathy to the Amnesty Campaign in support of women's rights in Afghanistan, and specifically the calls of Afghan women:
- To be fully and meaningfully represented in any peace process
- For women's rights to be protected in the security transition
- To prioritise action to end violence against women and girls
- To ensure support and protection for women human rights defenders
Many thanks to Gordon for meeting with us and for his support for the campaign.
