Fowler OutSpoken Conversation: Human Rights for Afghan Women

Two distinguished speakers grant an insight into the current situation for Afghan women in their county.

On Wednesday, April 25, 2012, Nushin Arbabzadah (pictured right), research scholar at UCLA’s Center for the Study of Women and an author, journalist, analyst and translator, and Brad Adams (pictured left), executive director of Human Rights Watch’s Asia Division since 2002, will discuss Afghan women’s rights since 2001, which was when the international community intervened in the country.

Adams elaborates on a newly released Human Rights Watch report on Afghan women and girls being imprisoned for “moral crime.” Together he and Arbabzadah will bring us up to date on the current state of rights for Afghan women.

Please join them before the talk from 6–7 pm for a light reception in our courtyard and a viewing of the related exhibition, Order and Disorder: Alighiero Boetti by Afghan Women.

This lecture program is generously supported by the Robert Lehman Foundation.
