‘Voices on the Rise’ exhibition arrives in the Hague

21.06.2012 - 06.07.2012

'Voices on the Rise: Afghan Women Making the News' is an exhibition that explores the lives of Afghan women from the rare perspective of professional Afghan women. The exhibit shows how these trailblazing women are working towards the reconstruction of their country in a range of fields, including journalism, the arts, government, politics and human rights.

Following shows in France, the UK, Canada, Indonesia and Belgium, EFD brought the exhibition to The Hague in June and July 2012.

The exhibition is dedicated to Afghan women, the unsung heroes who are rebuilding their country and supporting the emergence of a more egalitarian society. The women portrayed are pioneers and their spirit and determination show that, in spite of the challenges, Afghan women’s voices are on the rise.
