Hasina Azizi , Women’s Rights in Afghanistan
Refuge, activism and migration are themes that we touch on in our talk. 📣
Hasina is a known activist, working for several NGOs including the United Nations and the Women’s corp peace of Afghanistan. 📖Education has been important in her family. Being one of very few women from her village Nimrus she received a scholarship allowing her to study abroad in India to gain an international degree. Once she began her career she helped to support her family and simultaneously founded a vocational training facilty for women specialized in weaving. 🧶🧵This start up provided job opportunities to women in need (Baluchi handmade products).
A tale of resistance, she recalls the harrowing escape from Afghanistan once the Taliban regained power. Eventually escaping to a humanitarian city camp in Abudabi. Initially, told she would only be there for two weeks, she finally could migrate to Germany six months later.
Hasina continues to advocate for women who are no longer permitted to attend school after the age of 6, are no longer permitted to work and have been dashed from almost all forms of public life.
