Seminar: Protecting Women's Rights in Afghanistan

16 October 2013

London

Following the screening of the short film The Parable of Gulnaz, the panel will share their thoughts on the position of women in Afghan society. 

The speakers will offer practical suggestions as to how Afghan women can be best supported following the withdrawal of international troops. They will highlight matters where women are particularly at-risk, and suggest what can be done to prevent the issue of women’s rights being sidelined after 2014.
