How to empower Afghan women

Our ‘Talk Action’ series is a succession of bi-monthly learning tools designed for Save the Children supporters and campaigners to develop their practical campaigning skills and to raise awareness of the issues we focus on.

This month we interviewed Noorjhan Akbar, co-founder of Afghan women’s grassoots movement for gender equality, Young Women for Change.

  • Listen to her story (you’ll need Windows Media Player) of setting up the organisation and campaigning to empower Afghan women through awareness building and political campaigning.

Noorjahan has been an active campaigner on human rights and worked in Afghanistan for nearly ten years.
