As U.S. Occupation Ends, Future Uncertain for Women and Girls in Afghanistan

On KQED Radio's "Morning Edition," CIC senior fellow Rina Amiri narrates the experiences of Afghan women in the country as the Taliban takes over Afghanistan.

"What I want to remind people, is that the situation for women in Afghanistan, in many respects — in terms of the rights accorded to them both on paper and how it was applied, at least in more populated areas, — was not so different from any part of the Muslim world where progressivism is allowed, and even what we have here [in the United States]."
