Recognizing the importance of women's situations in Afghanistan and Iraq, the Human Rights Program and the Advocates for Human Rights are presenting a two-phase Conference on Women of War: The Struggle of Afghan and Iraqi Women for Democracy. The first phase of the conference will consist of a panel discussing issues of war in Afghanistan and Iraq and the impact of the United States' exit strategy on women's rights. The Advocates' Women's Program Director Cheryl Thomas will moderate the panel. Panelists include Anila Daulatzai, a Dean's Teaching Fellow in the Department of Anthropology at Johns Hopkins University and an Adjunct Professor of Humanities and Social Sciences at the American University of Afghanistan; Haider Hamza, an Iraqi Photo Journalist; and Yousef Baker, a sociology PhD candidate at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
