Standing against the Taliban

Standing against the Taliban hatred of women is not a choice. Not a luxury. Not an social media time-passing. It is our duty as women, as humans, as citizens under the law, as a human race.
We cannot watch 19 million girls and women being wiped out from the face of earth simply because a few powerful persons, mostly men, decided to give power to a terrorist group to do so and do so with impunity.
We cannot celebrate education today and we cannot advocate for skills in EU in 2023 when our sisters education and skills are being shredded into pieces.
Yes Afghan women will continue resisting, they will open underground schools and they will teach girls at home. Yes some of them will go to hidden or private universities. Yes some will access grants and online courses. But how many? How many out of 19 million? And why do they need to do it in secrecy , under threats of bullets and lynching, in fear of being caught and persecuted?
It is not good enough to say “we feel sorry for Afghan women”. We call the European women and European institutions to act in unity to reject the Taliban in all its forms and in “all its diversity”. To make a clear condition that Afghan women’s rights are NOT conditional and to remember that some Taliban is walking among us today too! It is not only the Afghan problem.
