Women and Brussels Agreement Resolution Approved by Senate

On December 13, the Senate approved, by unanimous consent, a resolution (S. Res. 191) expressing the sense of the Senate commending the inclusion of women in the Afghan Interim Administration and commending those who met at the historic Afghan Women’s Summit for Democracy in Brussels.

The resolution, sponsored by Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA), states “It is critically important for the future of Afghanistan that women participated at the United Nations sponsored talks in Bonn and will be included in the Afghan interim administration.” The resolution also states that the “Afghan Women’s Summit for Democracy recommendations for health, education, political participation, and refugee programs for women should be strongly considered when shaping the future of Afghanistan.”
