In Conversation With Former First Lady Laura Bush: Voices of Hope
For more than a decade, Laura Bush has led efforts to protect the hard-earned rights of women in Afghanistan. The George W. Bush Institute recently released the book We Are Afghan Women: Voices of Hope, which highlights the stories of extraordinarily resilient women and their struggles, successes, and resolve in present-day Afghanistan. The former first lady will join Walter Isaacson and one of these extraordinary women, Mina Sherzoy, founder of the Afghan Women’s Business Federation, in conversation about how Afghan women have persevered through harsh circumstances and contributed to positive change to their nation, and how they face today’s ongoing challenges.
