- Thank you for your question, Minyature. With Secretary Clinton's lead, we have been closely focused on the status of women and girls in Afghanistan and working with Afghan women's groups to ensure their political engagement during these transitional times. As we move toward 2014, it's critical that women have a central role in the transition process. You can view the Afghanistan report here: go.usa.gov/pHY. I'd also refer you to Secretary Clinton's speech on Women, Peace, and Security: go.usa.gov/pH2.
