Inderfurth Recognizes Work of Feminist Majority Foundation for Afghan Women
In his remarks on Afghanistan to the Council on Foreign Relations, Karl Inderfurth, U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for South Asian Affairs pointed to the value of the work of the Feminist Majority Foundation to help restore human rights to the women and girls of Afghanistan.
Inderfurth stated that "promoting human rights, particularly the rights of women and girls, is one of our highest priorities in Afghanistan today."
While Inderfurth mentioned small improvements in education and health care for women and girls in Afghanistan, he acknowledged the necessity that "We urge the Taliban to allow women and girls to fulfill their most basic human needs: of education, healthcare, and employment. And we urge the international community to keep the plight of Afghan women and girls high on its agenda - as we will - until these things are done."
