Several famous writers have signed an open letter in the Guardian expressing concern about the place of women in US-Taliban peace talks — or, rather, the lack thereof.

Margaret Atwood, Khaled Hosseini, Arundhati Roy, and Neil Gaiman are among those who say the talks exclude women and also risk pushing back their rights in Afghanistan.

They, along with five Nobel laureates, join more than six hundred Afghan women and youths in signing the letter.

Read the letter in the Guardian and also learn more about the coordinators of it in the Guardian’s article.
