Dare to Educate Afghan Girls
TED TALK with Shabana Basij-Rasikh

Imagine a country where girls must sneak out to go to school, with deadly consequences if they get caught learning. This was Afghanistan under the Taliban, and traces of that danger remain today. 22-year-old Shabana Basij-Rasikh runs a school for girls in Afghanistan. She celebrates the power of a family's decision to believe in their daughters -- and tells the story of one brave father who stood up to local threats.

World Affairs Council is on hiatus for the holidays and will hold its next programs beginning in mid January.
