The Heritage Foundation and the United States Institute of Peace will co-host Congresswomen Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Donna Edwards (D-MD), Co-chairs of the Afghan Women’s Caucus, to speak about the gains Afghan women have made over the last decade and the challenges they face as U.S. and NATO forces withdraw. Following the Congresswomen’s remarks, an expert panel will discuss the issue in its security context as well as the challenges of the NGO community in carrying on its work in the health, education, and political sectors.

This event marks the first in a series on the issue of Afghan women that will be co-hosted by The Heritage Foundation and USIP in coming months. We hope you can join us for this first exciting and timely event.
