Dave Stewart - Womens Rights In AfghanistanDave Stewart, is  among over 100 stars who have written to British Prime Minister David Cameron about ensuring female’s rights in Afghanistan are protected, just in time for International Women’s Day.

“In the last six months, numerous Afghan women committed to working for peace and development have been murdered, including four policewomen, a pregnant school teacher and a local government worker,” the letter continued. “We mustn’t turn our backs on the women and girls of Afghanistan. We ask that you publicly insist on renewed commitments to women’s rights from the new Afghan President when that person is elected.

“As Prime Minister your support sends a very clear message to the Afghan authorities as well as to the brave women working for the future of their country.”
