Afghanistan: A Woman Parliamentarian Looks Ahead

Trying to rebuild her country and gain rights for women

Wednesday, June 03, 2009

Dr. Roshanak Wardak has a lot of ideas for repairing Afghanistan. She was a practicing physician for thirty years, then traded her stethoscope for a role as a member of Afghanistan's parliament. As one of 68 women in the lower house, she works for women's rights and to rebuild the beleaguered nation's infrastructure, especially schools and hospitals. She just testified before the U.S. Congress about her vision for her country and her work with RethinkAfghanistan.org.
