DUBAI: Angelina Jolie, the Hollywood actress and activist, honored women in Afghanistan this week, “one year after the fall of the government.”

The 47-year-old actress posted an op-ed she wrote for TIME on Instagram, saying, “It cannot end here.”

“The daughters of Afghanistan are amazing for their courage, perseverance, and inventiveness,” the Oscar winner remarked in the essay.

According to the actress, a year ago, Afghan women worked in all sectors, including doctors, teachers, police officers, and politicians.

“To my Afghan friends, I have faith in you and your resilience and your strength,” wrote Jolie. “I dream of visiting with my daughters, making friends, traveling around your beautiful country, and seeing you free to determine your own future … I know it’s possible. This does not end here.”
