...via their first lady, Rula Ghani. There is an article in the NYTimes and links to interviews. The one at the end of the article is with Thomas Friedman at the 2016 Women in the World New York Summit.

Thanks for the link bags How nice to read of good stuff coming from Afganistan, instead of just gloom and doom. I liked her comment " I never considered myself a feminist, I never had to" that's how I feel.

A very good person to mention thatbags.

I have had a small admiration of her since her husband took over from Karzai. I never took a liking to him but could never put my finger on why.

I just hope the evil of the Taliban will not become a news story one day, a brave woman .
