Fawzia Koofi at The Frontline Club

”I’ve come a long way passing many challenges, trials and sorrows along the road. From my humble beginnings as an outspoken female child in a misogynist society that did not value the female voice, to a voice for the vulnerable, defenseless and victimized community of women in Afghanistan today. My struggle began the day I was born”    Fawiza Koofi 

When we spoke with Fawzia at the end, she told us she had read some articles on Our Other Sisters  and said she thought the work we were doing was “very important”.  We couldn’t agree more!

Fawzia will run for Presidency in the 2014 Afghan elections.  Our Other Sisters went to hear her talk at The Frontline Club on the 17th February 2012.
