How do we address the crisis in Afghanistan? Bolster feminist movements
All over the world, feminist activists and organizations have toppled barriers to social justice and human rights.

Feminist movements are essential to national and global peace, safety, and well-being. Afghan women have been a part of the movements for decades. We have to do all we can to ensure they and their efforts survive and thrive. Photograph courtesy of Flickr/United Nations/Eric Kanalstein
