The Evolving Role of Women in Afghanistan

Airokhsh Faiz Qaisary joined us today and talked about her journey from Afghanistan to the United States and the role that Rotary has played in helping her along the way.  Airokhsh talked passionately about the history of Afghanistan and the role of  women and how it has changed, especially in the past twenty years. Airokhsh has committed her life to education of other girls in Afghanistan and as an advocate for women’s rights and women’s education, and peace around the world. Note: In 2018, supported by a Rotary Global Grant scholarship, Airokhsh graduated with a master’s degree in Gender Analysis in International Studies and Conflict Resolution from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy.
