Women of Afghanistan have passed through a long history of struggles and oppression. After August 2021 and the return of the Taliban to rule the country de facto, danger and fear circulate the future of the women and girls of Afghanistan. Those women have demands to voice and fight for, nationally and internationally. In the light of the above, The Asfari Institute for Civil society and citizenship at the American university of Beirut is pleased to collaborate with FEMENA and organize a series of webinars titled “My Voice to My Home”. This initiative plans to give Afghan activists a platform to connect with the students of AUB and advocate for their demands. Watch webinar here.
