This statement was made to the 51st session of the UN Human Rights Council (HRC), during the Interactive Dialogue (ID) on the situation of women and girls in Afghanistan. Since this Council’s urgent debate last July, the situation is devastatingly grim. It is clear that the de facto authorities are determined to systematically dismantle the rights of Afghan women and girls. No right to education, no right to work, no access to basic needs, no right to live a peaceful life. Women and girls are systematically being erased from public life and are prisoners in their own homes. More than a year after the Taliban takeover, the response from the international community, including from countries members of the OIC, has been deeply inadequate, uncoordinated and lacking in urgency.
