This year, on the 16 Days of Activism to End Gender Based violence from November 16th to December 10th, the grade 8th students from St. Margaret School also held a rally to end the gender based violence in Afghanistan. The rally which is #WalkWithAfghanwomen is to raise awareness that all girls’ schools are shutdown by the Taliban above 3rd grade in Afghanistan. The students made signs saying #LetHerLearn #EducationIsMyRight #StandwithwomeninAfghanistan.
Women Leaders of Tomorrow is grateful to the grade 8th students for their sympathetic advocacy, and standing in solidarity with young girls in Afghanistan.
