16 Days: Our Message on Sexual Harassment

We are glad to share with you a video of our Executive Director, Humaira Rasuli, speaking about impunity in sexual harassment cases. We have contributed this video as a member of the Afghanistan Women's Network, which has launched a series of videos by women activists as part of 16 Days of Activism.


WJO's 2019 - 2021's special mandate is to bring justice and accountability for all types of sexual harassment and sexual violence against men, women, boys and girls. We do this through litigation in court and accountability interventions. In the last year, we have worked with and lobbied the Attorney General's Office, Supreme Court and various Ministries on several cases and we renew our commitment to continue to strive the same in the next coming years, with the vision that we should leave no possibility for impunity to be the norm.


In Afghanistan, sexual harassment remains a serious disease in our society. Our Executive Director, Humaira Rasuli, shares our experience in these cases and the barriers which we still need to overcome. We demand those in authority, especially focal points of the justice process, to diligently investigate and prosecute harassment.
