International Women’s Day 2023

International Women’s Day 2023

Today, women and girls in Afghanistan have been removed from public life and can no longer enjoy the freedoms they once did, which all women are entitled to. Despite great risk to the safety of themselves and their families, many women and girls in Afghanistan courageously continue their studies, proving that Education Will Prevail.

In honor of International Women’s Day, we asked AUAF female students to share, in one word, what women’s education means to them. Paired with these powerful words from students are quotes from AUAF & FAUAF female board members.
