Afghanistan Holds First-ever Women’s Film Festival
Afghanistan’s first-ever women’s film festival will be held in Herat—a city whose high incidence of violence against women made it the perfect location, according to organizers. Many of the films will be tackling the issues that effect women like forced child marriages and domestic violence, among other topics. “They are women directors, with films about women, that talk about women’s issues,” says one of the sponsors and organizers of the Festival.
