The Women, Peace and Security Network – Canada (WPSN-C) is pleased to host a 90 minute presentation and discussion with Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan.
Join us for an overview of the current situation in Afghanistan focused on the Intra-Afghan peace talks and the importance of women’s participation in these negotiations and wider peacebuilding, at a time of escalating violence. The potential threats to advances made in women’s rights, specifically the right to education, amid an increase in targeted attacks on educators, students and places of learning will be addressed.
