Women’s Education In Afghanistan

Last Thursday, Merzia took part in a panel discussion at Somerville College, Oxford, on women’s education in Afghanistan – alongside leaders of Zorah, the Afghan Women’s Orchestra which has played to sell-out concerts in the UK this last week. Congratulations to Merzia – and to the young Afghan musicians whose playing was such a pleasure! We all enjoyed their concert at the packed Sheldonian Theatre on Saturday – and the poets presented their conductor with gifts, including a copy of England: Poems from a School to take back to Kabul!
