SINCE the beginning of the present war in Afghanistan, women’s rights have become a major focus for feminists and political leaders alike. Many argue that the war is concerned with securing women’s right to education, healthcare and access to the workplace. Others argue that political leaders have cloaked violence in women’s rights. But what have Afghan women got to say?

This Everybody’s Reading event features three dramatic readings of recent responses to the conflict by Afghan women. The readings reflect contrasting views of the conflict and provide some context for a brief discussion afterwards if desired.

The Enduring Freedom: New Writing by Afghan Women event is free and takes place on Sunday, October 3 at 7pm at Embrace Arts, Lancaster Road, Leicester.
