An Afghan woman speaks out on her war-torn nation.
Join us for an evening of conversation at All Saints Church with one of Afghanistan’s most famous and bravest women: Malalai Joya, former member of Afghanistan’s Parliament and author of A Woman Among Warlords.
Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar, host of media sponsor KPFK’s Uprising, and Co-Director of the Afghan Women’s Mission.
Malalai Joya will discuss:
— Why are Afghan women more vulnerable than ever?
— What is the impact of US drones, bombs and raids?
— What does the end of the US’s longest war mean?
— Why is violence increasing after 11 years of war?
A book signing will follow the talk.
