In this space each month we will publish new opinions, essays, and poetry by our writers in Afghanistan as part of our 2016 campaign titled Fighting Violent Extremism. In this campaign our writers explore and report on the conditions imposed by these terrorists in their provinces and their country today—and the prospects they see for peace in this decade.
Click on the links below to see the latest postings from our AWWP women writers across Afghanistan for this campaign. Essays have been edited for clarity.
Please consider leaving a comment to encourage our writers to share their voices on this topic that affects not only Afghanistan but our world.
