Women’s rights in Afghanistan depend on a comprehensive negotiated settlement—one that women have a role in shaping. In our research analyzing how 205 civil wars ended in 69 countries, we found that comprehensive peace agreements were vital for improving women’s political rights. But implementation is key: when the implementation rate increased from 10 to 80 percent, the probability of more substantial improvements in women’s political rights increased by almost 280 percent.
