Women & Girls in Afghanistan: How to Secure their Rights to Education? – An Alumni Event
A GCSP Alumni Community Central Asia & Afghanistan Hub Event
+600 days since the Taliban banned teenage girls from school. Afghan girls and women continue for the second consecutive year to be denied their basic human rights as a matter of state policy. This makes Afghanistan the only country in the world that forbids girls and young women from attending secondary school and places of higher education.
How can their rights be secured?
The GCSP Alumni & Community Hub Central Asia & Afghanistan invite to this roundtable discussion. Community members working in the field will reveal their advocacy to re-establish this fundamental right.
