“No society can progress without women’s empowerment and their full participation in political, economic, and cultural spheres. The role of women as agents of change, progress, and transformation is well documented in history. The Government of Afghanistan is committed to promote and protect the rights of women to achieve gender parity and full implementation of the SDGs.”

I support the IGC Panel Parity Pledge.
  • Advocate for gender inclusive language in resolutions

  • Organize two gender related events per year, with a focus on women’s political participation and economic empowerment
