Afghan Women at the Forefront of Climate Change

Join researchers from Monash University for the launch of an edited collection of stories, essays, photos, and artwork by Afghan women.

This project, conducted by students and supported by Monash Gender Peace and Security, showcases stories, artwork and essays from young Afghan women. These women are still living in Afghanistan and have written about their experiences of gender-based oppression and climate change. They provide an insight into why the voices of marginalised women are so important if we are to solve the climate crisis.

The night will entail presentations, voice recordings from the women, and Afghan music – and will also be available on Zoom.
