Loretto President Sister Barbara Nicholas signed this letter today, Aug. 31. It calls for the protection of Afghan women, the establishment of a U.N. instrument (UNSCR 1325) to set an international norm for this support and to ensure that peacekeepers are prepared to honor its principles. The letter was brought to her attention by the Loretto Peace Committee: Call to Action: UNSCR 1325 as an Instrument for the Protection of Afghan Women – Global Campaign for Peace Education (peace-ed-campaign.org)
