The United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women has reacted to the lack of participation of Afghan women and girls in the Doha meeting and has declared that it is deeply concerned about the exclusion of Afghan women and girls from the third Doha meeting.
By publishing a declaration, this committee has called for the active and direct participation of women and girls in the Doha discussions.
The announcement states that the non-participation of the Afghan civil society, including women human rights defenders, as meaningful participants in the Doha discussions, causes the rights of women and girls to be insufficiently considered.
The United Nations Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women says that the exclusion of Afghan women and girls from the Doha meeting only helps to weaken the credibility and effectiveness of this meeting.
According to international media reports, women’s rights are not on the agenda of the third meeting of country representatives in Doha, and civil activists and women’s representatives will not be present at this meeting either.
This committee has also asked the international community to ensure that women’s rights play a central role in the discussion with the current government and that all possible measures are taken to raise the voice of Afghan women and girls and not marginalize them.
It must be said that the exclusion of women from the list of participants of the Doha meeting has been widely criticized. A number of female activists and human rights activists of Afghanistan have launched a campaign to boycott this meeting.
