Nushin Arbabzadah, research scholar at UCLA's Center for the Study of Women and an author, journalist, analyst and translator, and Brad Adams, executive director of Human Rights Watch’s Asia Division, discuss Afghan women’s rights since 2001, when the international community intervened in the country.
Adams elaborates on a newly released Human Rights Watch report on Afghan women and girls being imprisoned for "moral crimes.” Together he and Arbabzadah bring us up to date on the current state of rights for Afghan women.
Please join us before the talk from 6–7 pm for a light reception in our courtyard and viewing of the related exhibition, Order and Disorder: Alighiero Boetti by Afghan Women.
