Beyond Victims 2021 - Afghanistan


We are very excited to present to you, Beyond Victims - 2021. This year's edition will be following one South Asian country for each of its parts and highlight the leadership of women in politics aiming to change the narrative to 'women as change-makers'.


Our first South Asian country is Afghanistan.



This year, we focused on curating stories of women political leaders as much as possible from grassroots and local politics.


At Women for Politics (WfP), we are committed to breaking the narrative of women as victims who need to be saved and seen as beneficiaries and move beyond victims narrative to women as change-makers and leaders through 'Beyond Victims' newsletter series.


In our inaugural edition Beyond Victims series 2020, we curated stories of women’s political leadership during the crisis posed by the pandemic.
