Mahnaz Afkhami spoke at the Wilson Center on February 25, 2016 in Washington, DC.
How do we encourage the empowerment of women and girls in societies that find this threatening? How can women in public service help the rise of women and girls globally? And how can women’s rights and women’s movements pave the way for policy change?
This Women in Public Service Project event is a panel discussion on the relationship between women’s rights and politics.
