Executive Summary

This report elevates the need to protect Afghan women’s rights in the aftermath of the international troop withdrawal from the country. The report argues that officials must enshrine women’s rights in any post-2014 constitution but must also ensure that women’s rights are not used as a bargaining chip in negotiations with the Taliban.
