Eastman Joins Female Senators and Calls on Biden Admin to Protect Afghan Women and Girls

Cary, NC – Today, every female Senator in the U.S. Senate from both sides of the aisle, signed a letter to President Biden urging his administration to “develop an interagency plan to preserve the political, economic, social and basic human rights of Afghan women and girls.” U.S. Senate candidate and combat veteran, Marjorie K. Eastman, fully endorses this call to action and issued the following statement:

“I served in Afghanistan and observed firsthand the hard-won gains for Afghan women and girls. It is powerful and unprecedented that every female senator in the U.S. Senate – regardless of political party – is calling on the Biden administration to establish an interagency plan to address this issue. Frankly, President Biden should have had a plan in place before his disastrous withdrawal happened. I fully support and agree with this letter calling for action from the administration and as North Carolina’s next U.S. Senator, I will join these female senators to ensure we are keeping America and our allies safe.”
