Cry for women's human rights!

This is the page of the CritVirtual movement, born among Catalonia women's associations in September 2021 on the occasion of the restoration of the Taliban regime in Afghanistan and that issued its first Virtual Cry for Afghan women on November 27 of 2021 on the occasion of the international day against gender-based violence.

Again we raise a second virtual shout, this time against the systematic violation of women's human rights around the world, and especially the gender apartheid that the women of Afghanistan and Iranian women continue to live, punished and imprisoned for defending their rights.

We convene the SECOND CRITVIRTUAL in the form of a worldwide digital demonstration, to denounce this unacceptable violation of human rights. Join the 30 days of activism for the human rights of women.

We will virtually fill Barcelona's Passeig de Gràcia...and maybe more! Join us, and let's raise an international and forceful shout that stirs consciences around the world. We say enough!

Access from this page all the information to participate in this movement, which will have its central event on Wednesday, January 10 at 7 p.m. CET+1.

Register NOW as a person or on behalf of your organization and we will fill Passeig de Gràcia so that everyone can be there on January 10th.

Previous Crys



Yes, we have left someone behind... a few million!

For the first time in the history of humanity, in 2015 we agreed on a global roadmap - the 2030 Agenda - which is based on three values: 1. The starting point is Human Rights; 2. Commits to leaving no one behind; 3. And to fight for gender equality and the empowerment of women. On December 10, 2023, the day we celebrate the 75º anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, we will have to acknowledge, with sadness, that we have not achieved it. Millions of women suffer unimaginable levels of violence. We will not make an exhaustive mention, but let two causes serve to represent them all: the repression against women's rights in Iran with the movement “Woman, Life, Freedom” and the Gender Apartheid that is taking place in Afghanistan.

We, citizens from all over the world, demand a return to the roadmap....

On 2021 Nov 27th more than 500 entities, women, and men from all over, led the first virtual demonstration, the Cry for Afghan women, which brought together more than a million people, filling Barcelona's Paseo de Gracia and Diagonal Avenue. Once again, we invite you to be part of this movement in favor of millions of women and their families who suffer inhuman abuse.

If the don’t wear the veil properly, their life worths nothing!

After Mahsa Amini’s murder on September 2022, Iranian women broke their silence and occupied the streets with the claim “Woman, Life, Freedom”, against a government system with a radical Islamic ideology, patriarchal and sexist which subjects them. With this movement, women’s repression in this country has become even harder with thousands of detentions, tortures, harassment and brutal executions of women and protesters.

If they are deported to Afghanistan, they will be killed.

It’s not just a sentence. Unfortunately, we have received terrifying videos on our own mobile phones. The Taliban have murdered in Afghanistan women human rights activists, midwives, journalists, artists, etc… solely for the fact of being so... And also, their brothers, uncles and cousins to force them to declare where those women and their families are hiding.

In Afghanistan, violence against women is systemic and all institutional, religious, and military resources are used to nullify their will and make them disappear. They are hostages in their own country. They stone them, poison them, harass them, sell them, marry them when they are children... A gender Apartheid is being carried out before the eyes of the rest of humanity. Thousands of these women managed to flee that horror and live temporarily in Pakistan, with their families. Many of them have been supported by international organizations, some of them from our country, awaiting the response of third countries to their request for asylum. A response that can take from TWO to THIRTY years. They had to flee unexpectedly and many of them are in an irregular situation. As we speak, the Pakistani government has begun a mass deportation campaign of over 1.5 million Afghan refugees! and is forcing all Pakistanis to expel them from homes, and from work.

With this With this Critvirtual for the women’s human rights which will take place on 2023 December 10th, women and men from all walks of life, we demand that the international community act immediately against this abuse and we urge the Government of Spain and the rest of the member countries of the European Union to recognize the right to asylum for Gender’s reasons of these women and their families, without having to prove anything to obtain it, both from Afghan women and from all those women who are persecuted in their countries for being women; we urge the governments to recognize and condemn, at an international level, the gender Apartheid women are suffering. We urge to stop executions; we urge for international condemnation of these dictatorial political systems that are using inexplicable brutality and cruelty against women and girls.

If one is left behind, we are all left behind. For women around the world, we shout: Enough!

Raise your voice: spread this Cry everywhere and let’s fill Barcelona’s Passeig de Gràcia!
