Make Mothers Matter Campaign: #Raiseapen: A Global Campaign for Women and Girls’ Right to Education in Afghanistan
MMM #RaiseAPen campaign to raise awareness for women and girls’ right to education in Afghanistan, originated at an event at the London School of Economics, ‘Mobilising for sustainable peace in Afghanistan: a mothers’ campaign’. MMM co-organised the discussion with the LSE Civil Society Unit. This was the start of the conversation to support Afghan mothers in their call and highlight the importance of women’s and mothers’ voices at the peace negotiating table at a critical juncture in the country’s history.
Exactly one year later, partnering with its associate members the Farkhunda Trust for Afghan Women’s Education and Mothers For Peace, Make Mothers Matter is joining forces with international personalities, organisations and civil society to mobilise the #RaiseAPen Campaign and take this call to the next level.
