Malalai Joya

Malalai Joya, 10/19, 7:00 – 9:00 PM

An Afghan woman speaks out on her war-torn nation.

Join us for an evening of conversation at All Saints Church with one of Afghanistan’s most famous and bravest women: Malalai Joya, former member of Afghanistan’s Parliament and author of A Woman Among Warlords.

Hosted by Sonali Kolhatkar, host of media sponsor KPFK’s Uprising, and Co-Director of the Afghan Women’s Mission.

Malalai Joya will discuss:

— Why are Afghan women more vulnerable than ever?
— What is the impact of US drones, bombs and raids?
— What does the end of the US’s longest war mean?
— Why is violence increasing after 11 years of war?

A book signing will follow the talk.
