Women’s Role in Society: The Experience in Afghanistan (Inaugural Annual Mary Ann McCracken Lecture)
November 18, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm| £10.00
Inaugural Annual Mary Ann McCracken Lecture | 18 November | 7pm | Via Zoom
This event will explore the real life experiences of Afghan women who have fled from the country including Sara, a recent graduate, and Dr Sima, an obstetrician and gynaecologist. Hear from them about their ongoing personal challenges, from access to services, education, jobs and housing, not to mention stigma, racism and integration.
Bilal, an Afghan national, who recently featured on BBC Spotlight, will talk about the risk to women still living in Afghanistan, and with a harsh winter approaching, the real threat of a humanitarian disaster for the thousands displaced by the conflict.
Finally, the Law Centre will raise the issues surrounding proposed changes to legislation, which could see those arriving here outside of official routes, stripped of their refugee status, detained, or deported back to the conflict they were lucky enough to escape.
