Women Rising Podcast: Airokhsh Faiz Qaisary – Changing Afghanistan, One Woman At A Time

Women Rising Podcast: Faiz Qaisary – Changing Afghanistan, One Woman At A Time

 

Airokhsh headshotWe sat down with Airokhsh Faiz Qaisary to discuss women’s education in Afghanistan, how women are changing the face of this formerly war-torn country, what life is really like on the ground in Afghanistan and misperceptions about the country. Airokhsh is an Afghan filmmaker, activist, public speaker, and Sahar Fellow. She is also a smart, savvy, force of nature who is very passionate about women’s education around the world, but particularly in her home country of Afghanistan. Afghanistan is a country that often makes the news (in a negative way), but is steeped in misunderstandings and an incomplete narrative that does not fully show the complexity of what’s going on there, especially when it comes to women. In this fascinating interview, Airokhsh and I talk about her work, break down many of the misunderstandings about women in Afghanistan, talk about women’s future there, and how you can make a difference in women’s lives in places like this central Asian country.
