4th Afghan Women Symposium
Afghan Women Messengers of Peace
From the 15th to the 17th of May, 2017, 300 participants, half of them from the provinces, attended a symposium dedicated
to the theme "Afghan Women, Messengers of Peace." The role of Afghan women in bringing about social peace within their families,
and their region, was discussed at length. Having lived through decades of war and violence, the participants explored how they
bring back a culture of peace and mutual respect to their society.
