Calling All Activists: Campaigning for No women, no peace.

No women, no peace. campaign workshops

Throughout August and September, we will be running workshops throughout the UK for activists on how to campaign for No women, no peace.

Over the next few months, the campaign will be focusing on ensuring the UK government works to put women's rights and women's participation at the heart of discussions around the transition in Afghanistan. Ten years after military intervention, world leaders are getting ready to discuss the transition of international forces out of Afghanistan. We are concerned that women's rights are being marginalised and women will not be able to take part in this discussion.

Our aim is to work with activists all over the country around women's rights in conflict, so our supporters are able to take action for the rights of Afghan women. We want to show the UK government that people in the UK are holding them to their promises to Afghan women, but we need your help.

A quick way to get started: Ask 38 degrees to campaign for women's rights in Afghanistan

We have suggested that 38 degrees, the UK online activist community, campaign for the UK government to support women's rights in Afghanistan. If you are a member of 38 degrees, you can vote for our campaign action on women's rights in Afghanistan here. If you would like to become a member of 38 degrees, you can do so here.
