Women workers at risk in Afghanistan speaker event

Did you know that in Afghanistan many every day jobs can be dangerous for women?
Being a teacher, MP, doctor, or policewoman could put you and your family at risk.

Huge gains have been made by and for Afghan women in the last 13 years, but this progress is fragile. Women brave enough to take on public roles still live in daily fear of attack.
Come join Amnesty UK members and supporters in the Auditorium at the Human Rights Action Centre to hear from Headteacher Parween, Doctor Dida and Activist Samira about the challenges they face in doing their work
When: Wednesday 25 June, 19:30-21:00
Where: Auditorium, Human Rights Action Centre, 17-25 New Inn Yard, London, EC2
To get an insight into the lives of women human rights defenders in Afghanistan please come prepared with any questions you would like to put to the panel. 
You can book your free place on Eventbrite
