Noisy Shoes you are risking death: Take action to help women in Afghanistan

 

Imagine if you were forbidden to wear shoes that make a noise, or be seen in the window of your own house.

Imagine if your mother was sick, but banned from visiting the hospital, and your sister wasn’t allowed to go to school or university. Imagine seeing your daughter traded into early marriage or slavery as a way to settle a family dispute.

For women and girls in Afghanistan, these horrors were daily life under the rule of the Taliban. To disobey these commands meant beatings, torture or death.

Ask Australian political parties to help ensure that the future is different for Afghan women.
