Since early 2013, AWWP has featured twelve Oral Stories series in which AWWP writers have collected stories from women in Afghanistan, in particular women who are illiterate and cannot write their stories themselves. The women’s stories are recorded, transcribed, and translated into English by our writers and then edited for publication.

We now proudly share with you our cooperative project with StoryCenter’s Silence Speaks initiative, launched to further amplify Afghan women’s voices by use of video storytelling. By presenting their personal stories as recordings accompanied by their own imagery, we believe these brave women’s voices will touch viewers deeply.
Update 7 October: We have added the sixth and final video to this series — “Who Says I Can’t Ride a Bike?” by Raha. Please click Read More to watch.

We can see the moon among clouds
We can bring it out
If we stretch out the hand of peace
If we open the mouth of love
We can split the sky
