Afghan Women Activists Resume Protest To Demand Recognition of Gender Apartheid

Saturday, 09/30/2023

A group of Afghan women's rights activists in Germany resumed their sit-in protest for the recognition of "gender apartheid" in Afghanistan.

On Friday, September 29, Tamana Zaryab Paryani set up a protest tent in Wipperfurt, Germany, calling on Afghan activists in Europe to join this campaign.

On social media platform X, Paryani wrote, "We appeal to the conscience of women and all individuals who value freedom in Germany, urging them to stand in solidarity with their sisters in Afghanistan and not allow the gender apartheid under the regime to continue in Afghanistan."

These women's rights activists went on a hunger strike from September 1 to September 13 in a sit-in tent located in Cologne, Germany.

They also spoke with the German, US and UN representatives, but it appears that these conversations did not succeed in meeting their demands to recognise the gender apartheid under the Taliban.

Earlier, Paryani had issued a statement saying that she had clearly conveyed the message of Afghan women to the German Foreign Ministry during her meeting with the representative of the German Foreign Ministry, but she did not receive a clear answer.
