In search of a hidden resistance in Afghanistan:

“The Underground Girls of Kabul” by Jenny Nordberg

Monday, June 18 @ 7pm, Room 202

                                 Free to attend. Registration is not needed.

An award-winning investigative journalist explores women’s lives in Afghanistan where culture is ruled almost entirely by men. Where women have almost no rights and little freedom Nordberg explores the custom of bacha posh, a girl temporarily raised as a boy and presented as such to the outside world giving safety to her family and often causing struggles for the girl herself as she approaches and goes through puberty. This book is a fascinating exploration of life in Afghanistan today.
