Capstone Presentation by Simin Wahdat
Lobbying for Afghan Women’s Political Rights

Simin’s practicum focused on lobbying for political rights of Afghan women in the US Congress and bridging between the US Congress and Afghan civil society. So far they have been able to have Congress sign an Open Letter that highlights the US’s long term commitment to support Afghan women beyond 2014. They have also been able to arrange for the Congresswoman’s office to meet with NGOs and Afghan women delegates to discuss Afghan women’s issues from civil society’s perspective. Come here more of Simin’s reflections on her practicum experience this spring!
