The Taliban returned to power in Afghanistan in August 2021, and since then, women have been largely banished from public life. As those inside and outside the country grapple with this new reality and contemplate what the future may hold, we invite you to join us for a conversation with a group of Afghan women who will draw from their own writing, research, public and library service, and activism to reflect on the current state of affairs and consider what lies ahead.
This event is a unique opportunity to hear our presenters, academics, and activists, speak about the situation in contemporary Afghanistan, the voices of women from Afghanistan and their quest for social justice and equality in current circumstances. We will commemorate International Women's Day (March 8th) by holding this conference on March 9th.
