If you're interested

America Abroad Media is running a fairly spiffy programme this coming Friday, 29 April.  It’s a town hall-style event hosted with Radio Killid Afghanistan and will connect audiences in DC and Kabul to discuss the future of women’s rights in Afghanistan.  It’s a timely topic, especially considering the backlash over the Greg Mortenson debacle and the Karzai administration’s penchant of trading women’s rights for political profit (most spectacularly with the 2009 law that effectively legalized marital rape). 

If you’re in DC and able to attend, the town hall is free (but requires an RSVP).  More information can be found here.
