Prof. Ní Aoláin featured on the Women, Peace and Rights Podcast Discussing Fundamental Freedoms and Women's Rights in Afghanistan
Prof. Fionnuala Ní Aoláin spoke out on the Women, Peace and Rights Podcast, discussing the UN responsibility to protect and promote women's rights in Afghanistan.
Prof. Ní Aoláin urged activists to pressure the UN Security Council, saying, "...we have obligations under the UN charter to protect and promote human rights, including the equality of women...We've had 20 years plus of the Women, Peace and Security agenda. And if that agenda doesn't mean something now it's worthless. What women and women activists have to do is cease to show up to meetings on women, peace and security. If the Security Council will not act on that agenda in the moment where it matters, we withdraw from talking to you about women, peace and security."
