Summary "Recent efforts at settling the decades-long conflict in Afghanistan have featured an increasingly vibrant and visible display of women's activism. Even with the support of the government and its international partners, Afghan women still face tremendous challenges to realizing their aspirations for a role in peacemaking. Based on extensive interviews throughout Afghanistan, this report attempts to better understand the changing public role of Afghan women today and their contributions to peacebuilding and ending violence" -- Publisher's web site.
