The Soul of Afghanistan: Women of Courage and Resiliency
Pamela Varkony- Author, speaker, women’s advocate, and “global citizen”
Throughout history, Afghanistan has been at the crossroads of cultures and conflicts…a link between east and west. From its history as an important stop on the Silk Road to being the graveyard of foreign armies, Afghanistan has struggled for peace and stability.
Throughout those struggles, it is the women of Afghanistan who have worked quietly to protect and educate their children and keep their families together while finding what small moments of personal happiness they could.
The Soul of Afghanistan: Women of Courage and Resiliency looks at the role of Afghan women within the context of the turbulent history of their country, with a focus on the recent takeover by the Taliban and what that portends for the future.
Lecture will be held from 11:00–noon p.m.
